Who knew Jägermeister was good for more than just Jäger bombs? Well, we discovered how delicious the German spirit can be when mixed properly in craft cocktails. Earlier this week, the iconic alcohol brand, hosted a Spring Awakening soiree at The McKittrick Hotel, where it celebrated the spirit, along with the 56 ingredients it’s comprised of.

Guests were encouraged to weave their way through the venue and try all five of the creative cocktails that were being featured, all made by top New York City mixologists. Light bites circled the main room, as well as shots of Jäger. A full band performed onstage and different stations placed throughout the rooms allowed guests to learn about the aging process and different spices used in the spirit. Additionally, a full wall of herbs allowed party goers to pluck their herb of choice to be incorporated into their cocktails.

And these weren’t your average cocktails, either. Whether served in a vat of steaming dry ice or torched just prior to being served, these cocktails weren’t messing around. In fact, even those who aren’t partial to the strong taste of Jägermeister would love sipping on these refreshing ‘tails. Celebrate the season that keeps the sun shining and the drinks flowing with these tasty cocktails:
