Jeffrey Morgenthaler discovered the Jägerita back in 2008. Whilst tending a bar at a private party, professional bartender David Cordoba stepped behind to craft a Jägerita. You wouldn’t think a cocktail comprised of Jägermeister and citrus would work, but it’s surprisingly amazing.
The Illusion is a super sweet & delicious cocktail ideal for summer time sipping. This drink can easily be built or shaken. It consists of a large measure of Midori with a splash of both Cointreau & vodka topped with pineapple juice.
“Think of it as an 1850s Mai Tai – similar drink, different island.” – David Wondrich, cocktail historian. The raspberry syrup adds balance and a touch of tartness whilst the rum adds some punch to the refreshing summery cocktail.
The classic Margarita dates back to the 1930s. Made well and you’ll be coming back for more. Stick with the original recipe for the first time then tweak the measurements to suit your palate; whether it be a little heavier on the tequila or lessening the Cointreau for a a less-sweet, tart Margarita.
