Boozy butcher creates a Jägerbomb sausage
He mixed pork with Jägermeister and Red Bull
A boozy butcher has invented a sausage that tastes like a Jägerbombs.
The family run business warned customers their sausages should be “eaten responsibly” after they started flying off the shelves.
H & S Milnes Butchers created the alcoholic bangers after a trainee suggested adding Jägermeister and Red Bull to the pork and breadcrumb mix.
Kenny Milne and his team initially created a batch from 50 pounds of meat but were stunned when the idea took off with customers.
And since last week, the business from Aberdeen has been struggling to keep up with demand for their sizzling sensation.
But head butcher Kenny, 48, from Aberdeen, said the sausages should be “eaten responsibly”.
He said: “One of our young lads came in one day and suggested that we try making some Jägerbomb sausages and my immediate reaction was to try and come up with a recipe.
“It certainly seemed like a good idea at the time – much like the real thing. It’s a sausage which needs to be eaten responsibly.
“It’s either genius or highlights the drinking problem that we have in this country.
“The flavour of it is very sweet from the Red Bull but the Jägermeister stabilises the taste.
“A lot of people have been pleasantly surprised by how much better it tasted than they thought it would.”
Legend Kenny even admitted to downing a few himself.
He added: “I’ve been prone to having the odd Jägerbomb on occasion to make sure that I can remember what happened the next morning.
“I think after a night of drinking lots of Jägerbombs this might not be what you want to cure a hangover.
“But the high sugar and energy content as well as the pork should make this a good cure.
“It seems to have caught the imagination of a lot of younger people and we’ve had to make another 50 pounds worth of it.”
The butcher also offers a sweet chilli and Irn-Bru range of sausages which have become a permanent menu item after trial run.
But it is not yet clear whether the Jägerbomb sausages will remain on the menu.
