Rough Seas

Tiki is playful and unexpected and I thought Jäger would be a great fit,” says Sother Teague of New York’s Amor y Amargo. “Jäger is layered with lots of grapefruit, clove and, ginger—all of which are found in tiki drinks.” His spicy-sweet cocktail, which combines Jägermeister, ginger, aged rum and orgeat, is a perfect alternative for Dark and Stormy lovers looking for a cocktail with more of a kick.
