The "Waterfront Cooler" cocktail is meant to be crushable drink for a hot summer day. It's inspired by two of the most sippable summer drinks, a Pimm's Cup & an Arnold Palmer, and they've both found a new friend in Jägermeister. You never want anything too sweet when it's hot out, so the only added sugar in the cocktail comes from the fresh muddled fruit. It starts with Jägermeister, which packs a punch of flavor from its 56 herbs & spices. Add in some refreshing cold-brewed tea, a few mint sprigs and a good quality ginger beer, and you've got yourself a cocktail that's easy to whip up and can be adjusted for preference. What's so fun about this cocktail is that there's no wrong way to do it, you can customize it however you like. I used Earl Grey Tea but you could experiment with fun teas like Chamomile or Peach. You can also play around with the muddled fruit and the mint, utilizing what's in season. Bartending at home has really shown me the importance of keeping it simple but delicious, and the "Waterfront Cooler" is both!
