Jägermeister, the well-known shot brand, is blooming this spring with refreshing craft cocktail recipes you need to try!

I was willing to give the brand another shot and try out the grown-up side of Jägermeister. How could one of my go-to’s back in college thrive in artisanal cocktail recipes? Thanks to Sother Teague, acclaimed bartender for Amor y Amargo, I was easily convinced. He created spring inspired cocktails to highlight the complex 56 ingredients of Jägermeister including herbs, roots and fruits. Better yet, you can purchase bar tools at Amor y Amargo so you can try and re-create Sother’s cocktails at home.
