Review:

I've used more of the liqueur than suggested by the folk at Jägermeister as I feel the drink benefits from more of the liqueur's herbal rootiness which softens the ginger beer's spice.

History:

Adapted from a drink promoted by Jägermeister and inspired by ginger root, one of the 56 herbs and spices that flavour Jägermeister.
