The Surfer on Acid, also known as “California Surfer”, is a popular cocktail drink featuring Jägermeister (a German herbal liqueur), coconut rum, and pineapple juice (fresh pineapple juice will be best).
Created in the 1990s by Los Angeles bartender Eric Tecosky, the Surfer on Acid is a unique drink that can be served as a cocktail on the rocks, straight up or as a shot, and is a wonderful drink you can enjoy at the beach, in a bar or at home. Yes… the catchy name is not all there is to it. It’s also incredibly easy to mix. The recipe calls for equal amounts of only 3 ingredients, so it’s easy to remember and you can adjust the size as much as you want.
Unlike other spirits, we rarely see Jägermeister in cocktails. The German digestive is more often seen in shots such as the infamous Jägerbomb (simply drop an ice-cold shot of Jägermeister into a glass with an energy drink)
On the rocks, straight up, or as a shot, this unique summer drink is to be enjoyed on the beach, at a party, or even at home.
Make one, try it, and tell us how it was… 😉
Ingredients and preparation:
- Pour 1 ounce (30 ml) of Jägermeister, coconut rum, and fresh pineapple juice into a cocktail shaker and fill with ice. (Optional – 1/4 of an ounce – 7.5ml of freshly squeezed lime juice can be a pleasant addition).
- Shake well and strain into an Old Fashioned over ice, straight up, or pour it into shots.
- A pineapple wedge would be an appropriate garnish. A lime wedge would also work. 😉
