Carrot Ginger and Jagermeister Welcome Soup Shots

Jägermeister Welcome Soup N' Sips

Chef Santos

Chef Chris Santos Says…

When I have house parties, I like to greet incoming guests with a “welcome to the party" shot. Not simply a cocktail or Jägermeister shot, but something more surprising and unexpected, much like the flavors of Jägermeister itself! A comforting shot of Jägermeister-infused soup gives a truly warm welcome.”

Star anise, coriander, and ginger highlight some of the classic flavors and ingredients of Jägermeister, all while warming you up.

Cocktail Inspiration:

When I first made the soup I was all jazzed to make some outrageous cocktail to pair with it but the more cocktails I tried to pair with it the more I felt it dumbed down the complexity of the soup. Suddenly I realized that I could treat the soup as a sort of Sangrita-Esque side sipper to enjoy along the different flavors of Jägermeister to see what flavors it pulled out both in the spirits and the soup.

Diversity in food means the enjoyment of geographically varied foods of different cultures. Chef Santos is inspired by cuisines from all over the world and uses flavors and techniques from different cultures in all of his dishes as do I in cocktails. Jägermeister's botanicals are sourced from all over the world which shows a diversity of flavor in the bottle. I paired our ice-cold Mini Meisters with Chef’s warm welcome soup. The unexpected combination pairs beautifully and showcases enjoyment of geographically varied flavors

Tips & Tricks:

Tasting spirits can be intimidating for some but just remember to keep it fun. There are no wrong answers and so many things taste and smell wise can trigger your olfactory memory. So maybe this side-by-side sip does taste like a dish you had years ago? Or maybe it smells like your last trip to the farmers market, the lobby of a juice bar, etc. Have fun and go in with as little of a bias as you can and just sip at the moment!
