Ours is the Fury Cocktail

At San Diego's Campfire restaurant, head barman Brian Pugalidad slings a refreshing, honey-whispered cocktail fortified with a split base of rye and Jägermeister. Reminiscent of a spiced Gold Rush, this cocktail sneaks Jäger in to play a supporting role, amping up the rye while sweetening the citrus. "Jägermeister skillfully used in a well-balanced cocktail offers me an opportunity to give my guests new, positive memories associated with Jägermeister while building trust and expanding guests' horizons as to what a cocktail can be," says Pugalidad. "My favorite is the disbelief when I tell my guests that Jägermeister is even in their cocktail!"
