Try something a little wild this Friday, tame a Grizzly Bear cocktail!
The Grizzly Bear is a like a flavorful milkshake with coffee, almond, and herbal flavors. The cocktail makes use of a German digestif, Jägermeister–made from herbs and spices–which gives the drink a little kick, or should I say claw? This concoction is likely a more recent creation, as far as mixed drinks go, probably appearing on the scene sometime in the 1990s.
What you’ll need: Kahlua, Amaretto, Jägermeister, and Milk
In a shaker over cracked ice, pour in equal portions (1 ounce each) of Kahlua, amaretto, and Jägermeister. Add in 2 ounces of milk. Shake and then strain into an old-fashioned glass with or without cubed ice.
How I like it: The proportions of milk used varies by recipes from as little as 1 1/2 ounce to 2 1/2 ounces. Using 2 parts milk to 1 part of the other ingredients makes for a nice balance. For an extra sweet and smooth taste, consider using cream if you don’t mind the extra calories. I used 1 1/2 ounce cream for my version.
Jägermeister, means hunting-master, so master the bear and drink responsibly!
