Friday Cocktail

Grizzly Bear cocktail

Grizzly Bear cocktail

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!
