Superbowl Sunday is almost here!
Saints? Colts? I don’t know about the rest of you, but I am WAY more excited about the upcoming Superbowl party than I am for the actual game. This year, I’m a little concerned about the cocktail side of the party. There will be veritable rivers of Jägermeister flowing through the crowd and the only mixer currently slated to appear is… can you guess?
Now, don’t get me wrong, I have enjoyed my share of Jägerbombs. But we’ve all seen that bombing all night leads to a sad, sad morning. So this year I’m putting the Jägermonster to the test!
In a cordial glass if you have one, in a shot if you don’t, you’ll layer: 1 ounce Jäger, 3/4 ounce orange juice, and 1/4 ounce of grenadine. Use a spoon to control flow; the aim is to get the liquors into the glass without disturbing the clarity of the layers. It’s all about visual appeal, people.
It’s pretty sweet, has that Jäger-cough-syrup tang that we all know and love. Keep in mind that it’s loaded with sugar, which may contribute to your raging post-game headache. As always, pace yourself with water and know your limits!
