Classic Jagermeister Shot

If you are old enough to legally enjoy Jägermeister then you probably are already familiar with the most common way to enjoy the spirit - as an ice cold shot. I thought it was time to explore some other great drink recipes to celebrate the herbal liqueur, so the folks at Jägermeister helped me put together this list of Jägermeister cocktail recipes.  However, I decided that it was time to take things into my own hands and add some other Jager cocktails to our list as well!
