After cheap gin, cheap brandy and expensive beer, our favorite alcoholic drink is Jägermeister*.
Jägermeister*, a German liqueur, comes in a distinctive green bottle.
We’ve been enjoying Jägermeister for close to a year now and still haven’t gotten bored.
With a taste verging more than a little bit on cough syrup, the dark brown-colored Jägermeister doesn’t have any of the unpleasantness or sting of other strong alcoholic drinks.
Au contraire, Jägermeister actually has a pleasant flavor, one that even people put off by the bitter taste and and strong odor of liquor will thoroughly relish.
If you believe the folks at Wiki, Jägermeister is made from 56 herbs, fruits, roots, and spices including citrus peel, liquorice, anise, poppy seeds, saffron, ginger, juniper berries, and ginseng. Cool!
Some folks make cocktails with Jägermeister mixing it with Red Bull (for Jägerbomb) or with pineapple juice and Malibu Rum (Surfer on Acid). There are other Jägermeister -based cocktails as well.
But we’ve always enjoyed our Jägermeister neat, without any ‘adulteration.’
As a matter of fact, we’ve been slowly sipping Jägermeister while alternately writing this post and reading the piece on Murdoch’s best pal Robert Thomson in the latest issue of New Yorker (April 8, 2011).
Jägermeister is a little expensive compared to your average cheap Gilbey’s gin or ginger brandy. A small bottle (200-ml) costs about $6.99. But completely worth it.
Our 200-ml bottle had 35% alcohol by volume (70 proof).

“…..slowly sipping Jägermeister while alternately writing this post…”
hmm. never had or never seen people sipping jagermeister. they either have it as a shot or mix it in red bull (jager bomb).
“* Always drink responsibly”
whoa! thanks for your concern 😉 did the ‘owning company’ of this blog direct you to write this part? or are you genuinely concerned about us?
1. The reason we keep sipping slowly is because we are often working or reading till late.
2. You write: or are you genuinely concerned about us?
It’s often been alleged that we’re incapable of feeling the ‘love’ emotion. 😉
is it breast cancer awareness week? why pink everywhere? 😛
God! Is Pink supposed to be Breast Cancer Awareness Week?
Just changed it to Orange. Now, don’t tell us Orange represents P*nis Cancer Awareness Week. 😉
Orange looks bad. We’re going back to Pink.
BTW, does pink have anything to do with gays? Color Me Pink. 😉

Stop posting old news. 😉
Surely, they do this kind of stuff all the time in Pakistan, don’t they?
May even be the staple diet of the Pakis. Must brush up our general knowledge.
For those too lazy to read the full story above, here’s a ‘succulent’ extract of the Pakistani diet:
Their reason to turn cannibals is most hilarious. “tthe brothers seemed to have taken up cannibalism as an act of revenge as their wives had left them after the death of their mother.”
Yeah, read that.
Who can fathom the misfiring snyapses in a Paki ‘brain’….not even the most qualified neurologist!
