Jägermeister Old Fashioned

Jagermeister Old Fashioned Cocktail / Tim Nusog

Willy Shine, the “brandmeister” for Mast-Jägermeister U.S., likes to point out that Jägermeister is basically a German amaro with a great deal of heritage behind it. “Jägermeister is a very versatile liquid to work within the realm of cocktails,” he says. 

Shine believes the two base spirits in this riff on an Old Fashioned make a perfect match. “Jägermeister and rye whiskey pair together harmoniously, so it was only natural to create a Jägermeister version” of the classic whiskey cocktail, he says. “I love the spicy notes in this cocktail, as well as the layers of flavor upon every sip.” 


  • 1 ounce Jägermeister

  • 1 ounce rye whiskey

  • 1 teaspoon maple syrup

  • 1 dash Dale DeGroff’s pimento bitters

  • Garnish: orange twist


  1. Add the Jägermeister, rye whiskey, maple syrup and bitters into a chilled Old Fashioned glass with ice and stir until well-chilled.

  2. Express the oils from an orange twist over the glass and drop into the glass.
