“We all know—or in some cases, remember—that Jägermeister is great as an ice-cold shot, but it’s nice as a sipper, in a Hot Toddy or as a modifier in twists on classic cocktails,” says Evan Wolf, a bartender at Sidecar Patio & Oyster Bar in New Orleans.
For this mashup of a Mint Julep and Cobbler, Wolf uses blackberry jam and fresh blackberries, but you can play around with any seasonal or preferred fruit. Use a meat tenderizer or rolling pin if you don’t have bar tools to make crushed ice.
- 2 ounces mint-tea-infused Jägermeister*
- 1/4 ounce lemon juice, freshly squeezed

Add all ingredients into a shaker with one ice cube and shake for 10 seconds.
Double-strain into a double Old Fashioned glass filled with roughly crushed ice.
