Jägertee

One of the popular après-ski drinks, this concoction will not fail to warm you on the slopes or at home.

Although Jägertee is easily made at home, ready-made mixtures containing the sugar and spices are sold in shops. The Austrian "Strohrum" is often used for making it and the brand also produces its own ready-made variety. We think making Jägertee from scratch (and sampling it along the way...) is half the fun, so follow the recipe below.

Ingredients:
1 cup red wine
1 cup of tea
1 cup spiced rum
1 cup plum brandy, Schnapps or any other liqueur to hand
1 cup orange juice
2 to 3 whole cloves
1/4 of cinnamon stick sugar
2 lemon slices

How to make it:
Heat the tea, wine, rum, brandy, orange juice, spices and lemons in a pot. Let it come to gentle simmer for around 5 minutes. Remove from the heat. Add a little sugar to taste.

Enjoy and drink responsibly!
