This exciting cocktail is great for any party but the name lends itself especially well to a Halloween party. The cocktail mixes tequila and grapefruit with the powerful Jägermeister liqueur. Jager can very much be a love it or hate it drink, but mixed in this intense cocktail people will love it.

Jägermeister is a digestif drink which means it was originally taken after a meal to aid digestion. It is a German drink made with 56 herbs and spices with an alcoholic volume of 35%. The drink was created by Curt Mast in 1934 at the age of 37. He had worked closely with his father most of his life trying to perfect the recipe. Mast was an enthusiastic hunter and the name Jägermeister when translated means ‘Master Hunter’ and was actually a job title well known throughout Germany applied to those in charge of game keeping and hunting.

Jager is a type of herbal liqueur made up of 56 herb, roots, fruits and spices such as liquorice, anise, saffron, juniper and ginseng. The ingredients are soaked in alcohol for 3 days then the alcohol stored for a year. Then, sugar caramel and more alcohol is added. It is said that Jägermeister should be kept in the freezer and served cold.

While the Jager-bomb or Liquid Heroin may be the popular Jägermeister cocktails, serve this Fright Night in the Grove and your friends will be asking for more and more! Here’s how to make it:
