Oh My God, Danke?

This one is short and sweet. I was given the name “Oh My God, Danke?” as a drink name which is a line from the show Fun Home, and I decided to basically throw whatever German ingredients I had at a cocktail over something American (preferably Pennsylvanian) as a sort of cover up. The result:

ohmygoddanke

Oh My God, Danke?

  • 1.5 oz. Wigle Landlocked Spiced
  • 0.5 oz. Blackberry liqueur (Echte Kroatzbeere)
  • 0.5 oz. Jägermeister
  • 0.25 oz. Bärenjäger
  • 0.25 oz. lemon juice
  • dash of Underberg bitters

Shake with ice and strain into coupe.

Wigle is a Pennsylvania distillery, and their honey-based Landlocked Spiced is a great base for this drink. Add to that blackberry, a honey liqueur in Bärenjäger and an herbal liqueur in Jägermeister and you have a complex — and sweet — spiced drink. The lemon helps bring out the blackberry and the bitters (also German) help to balance out the sweetness. Austrinken!
