The surfer on acid cocktail is a drink built with jägermeister, coconut rum, and pineapple juice!

Surfer On Acid Cocktail Info

Jägermeister, a German liqueur that dates back to 1934, is the foundation of this cocktail. It is made by steeping 56 herbs, spices, including ginger and citrus peel, in alcohol and water. This concoction is then aged in oak for one year before being sweetened and bottled. The complex liqueur is well-known as a party drink (take a look at the Jäger Bomb). However, enterprising barkeeps have discovered that the liqueur can be used in cocktails.

One of these cocktails is the Surfer on Acid. It demonstrates how herbal Jäger can be combined with contrasting ingredients like pineapple juice and tropical coconut rum.

The Surfer on Acid was created by Eric Tecosky, a Los Angeles bartender, in the 1990s. This versatile drink can be enjoyed straight up, in a shot, or as a cocktail. The drink is effortless to remember due to the quantities being equal parts + pineapple juice to your liking. 

The Surfer on Acid can be served over ice to help temper the herbal and sweet flavors.

The Jägermeister adds a lot of power and a slightly bitter backbone. Meanwhile, the classic combination of pineapple juice and coconut rum gives it a sweet, fruity flavor. Fresh pineapple juice (or the finest bottled juice) will add brightness and acidity to your drink. This will help to maintain the balance of the flavors.

This tall, cold cocktail is the perfect refreshment for a hot day, no matter if you're in California surfing or at your local bar.
