There was a time when Jäger (as it is commonly called) gained a notorious reputation because it can get you really drunk quickly. That was mostly due to its use in shooting games There is often a love-hate reputation associated with it (similar to tequila) and it is one of the more powerful drinks available.
A jager shot is the plainest and popular drink of Jägermeister. In addition to Jägermeister, cinnamon and peppermint schnapps are mixed in this shot recipe. It’s not always the best beverage to drink a shooter. These are usually to get you drunk and tend to contain a lot of alcohol. There is a fine line between cold and hot degrees of the stone-cold stinger.
- The shot can also be made without the cinnamon schnapps. Rum, Jägermeister, and Rumple Minze each should be shaken with 1/2 ounces of ice and then strained.
