jagerita cocktail frozen

Portland’s Jeffrey Morgenthaler first discovered the Jägerita in London back in 2008 and was instantly enamored by it. “It’s basically an amaro sour, which is a type of drink I really love,” he says. “So it only seemed natural to try it frozen.”

The recipe—perfected by Morganthaler’s former colleague, David Cordoba—delivers a playful and bitter take on a frozen Margarita. Pairing Jägermeister with sweet cointreau, lime and syrup, the Jägerita makes for an unexpectedly sophisticated frozen drink.
