Jägertee (Wikipedia)

Jagertee (also Jägertee) is an alcoholic punch historically made by mixing "Inländer-Rum" with spiced black tea. It is served warm and is typically consumed during winter in the cold parts of Central Europe.

Although Jagertee is easily made at home, ready-made mixtures which already contain spices and sugar are sold in shops. The Austrian rum Stroh is often used for making it; this brand also produces its own ready-made variety.

Jagertee has become a popular après-ski drink, especially among tourists in the Alps. Jagertee carts sell the beverage outside at ski resorts and winter festivals.
