Order a JÃ¤ger bomb - it's a shot of JÃ¤germeister dropped into a Red Bull energy drink. Lots of fun with a group of friends. It'll get you tipsy pretty fast. It contains caffeine as well as alcohol, so just be careful. But enjoy, because JÃ¤ger bombs are awesome!!
(note: it's pronounced YAY-ger bomb.)
"On the rocks" means over ice.
"I'd like a whiskey on the rocks."
"Neat" means without ice.
"I'd like a whiskey, neat."
