    Probably that who was speaking used to drink a lot of Jaegermeister, which is an alcoholic drink.

    To "pound" a drink of alcohol, also to "slam": to drink rapidly.
    (these phrases, both "to pound" and "to slam", also have sexual connotations)
    Also used in reference to drink: to "throw back" or to "quaff"
