The "Shoot the Hostage"

Named for a line in an excellent action movie, this cocktail was invented by myself and my father on the evening of Thanksgiving 2017.

The recipe is as follows:

  • 1.5oz key lime juice
  • 2.5oz Gin (I'm partial to Beefeater)
  • 0.5oz Jagermeister
  • Good ginger beer to fill (we used Trader Joe's brand ginger beer)

Stir the liquors in a rocks glass half filled with ice, then top with ginger beer. The resulting cocktail is deliciously sharp and herbal, if slightly boring in appearance.
