How Jäger & Monster Tastes?

The Jäger & Monster cocktail is a bold mix that's both sweet and tangy, with a unique herbal undertone from the Jägermeister. The Monster Energy Drink adds a vibrant, citrusy sweetness, creating a refreshing yet strong beverage. It's a drink that's sure to energize and has a slightly syrupy texture.

Interesting facts about Jäger & Monster

  • Jägermeister is made with 56 herbs, fruits, roots, and spices.
  • Monster Energy Drink was first introduced in April 2002.
  • This cocktail is often consumed to kickstart a night out due to its energizing properties.



Jägermeister, the powerhouse of herbal notes, provides a complex base to our high-octane hootenanny. It's 1.5 oz of liquid courage, chuck-full of 56 herbs, fruits, roots, and spices. Too much and you're on a flavor overdrive, too little and the Monster overshadows it. It's the Goldilocks of pours. Swap it for another herbal liqueur like Fernet and you'll find yourself on a wilder herbaceous adventure, with a bolder bitter kick.

Monster Energy Drink

6 oz Monster Energy Drink zaps life into the cocktail, turning it from a simple herbal elixir into an electrifying potion. Not just a caffeine jolt; it brings a sweet and tangy brightness that plays like a rock concert with the Jäger's moody tones. Light on Monster and the cocktail hits snooze; heavy and it becomes a sugary surge capable of time travel. Think of swapping in Red Bull for a more standardized energy buzz, or even tonic for a lighter yet still sparkly twist.
