Jagermeister’s ‘Big 4’ Metal Cocktail Recipes

In honor of the upcoming 'Big 4' concert Sept. 14 at New York's Yankee Stadium — featuring Metallica, Megadeth, Slayer and Anthrax — Jägermeister has come up with 11 (as in, 'Turn it up to 11!') cocktails to mark the momentous metal occasion. The makers of the popular liqueur have named the libations after songs and albums made popular by the four thrash-metal titans. So, when you're headbanging to Slayer, and you feel the sudden urge to take the edge off with a 'Reign in Blood' cocktail, now you'll know exactly how to make one. As always, drink responsibly.
