While my family was still coming to this country in the late 1920's through the late 1950's from Germany ... Jagermeister was a main family beverage with the older folks.
I still like it a lot.
Has anyone here ever had something called Underberg?
Underberg tastes very much like Jagermeister but is 90*proof and has no sweetness at all (if you can imagine that). When I was a kid we used to call it "German truth serum" because if you claimed you had a stomach ache and could not go to school you were probably going to have to suffer through a dose of either Underberg or Paregoric ... both equally horrible at the time.
Now, Underberg is one of my very favorite aperitifs. How tastes change.
