Orange juice of course has a sweet and slightly tangy citrus flavor. It’s best to use poultry orange juice for the drink so that it has a smooth texture. Also, fresh orange juice that is not from concentrate and it’s not an orange juice cocktail is best as well.

How to make this drink:
With only two ingredients to drink can be whipped up and 2 minutes or less. All you need to do is toss your ingredients together and give them a stir.
- 2 oz Jägermeister
- 4 oz Orange Juice
Start out by gathering all the ingredients and equipment needed for the drink including jagermeister, orange juice, ice, a highball glass, a jigger, cocktail shaker and a Hawthorne strainer.
Grab your ice and fill your highball glass almost to the top with it.
note: there are two distinct ways to mix this drink. You can either do it in your glass or you can do it in a cocktail shaker.
The directions below are for mixing in the glass. However, if you want to mix in the shaker, also fill your shaker with ice and then pour your ingredients into the shaker instead of the glass.
Take your jigger and your jagermeister. Measure out 2 oz of Jager into your jigger and then dump that into your highball glass over the ice.
Next, add your orange juice. You can do this by taking your jigger and measuring 4 oz and then pouring that into your glass.
Or, you can simply take the orange juice and pour it directly into the glass topping it off. This method usually results in a slightly more orange juice which will temper the Jager flavor a little.
Next, you’ll need to stir your drink together. To do this you can either carefully dump the contents of the glass into your shaker and then from the shaker back to the glass.
Alternatively, you can leave everything in the highball glass and take a bar spoon. Then use the bar spoon to gently stir your drink together.
