A Honey Bear Claw With a Little Less Sting
The classic bear claw, also known as the bear fight, is a two-for-one shot cocktail that's a whole lot of chugging in not a lot of time. Thankfully, you can craft a kinder, gentler, more sippable type of bear claw--the honey bear claw--with this recipe.
Variations of the Honey Bear Claw
Consider a few of these ideas to put your own spin on a honey bear claw cocktail.
- Use a honey vodka in place of honey liqueur. If you don't have either on hand, add a half-ounce of honey to the ingredients and be sure to shake thoroughly to dissolve it completely.
- Swap the flavors around. Opt for a lemon vodka or liqueur and honey syrup.
- Change out the flavors a bit more with lemon vodka and maple syrup.
- Consider vanilla liqueur with honey syrup.
Honey Bear Claw Drink Garnishes
No drink is complete without a garnish, and the honey bear claw is no expectation. Any of these will make yours pop a little extra.
- Garnish with a small piece of honeycomb, piercing it with a cocktail skewer and balancing it on the rim.
- Instead of a fresh lemon wheel, use a dehydrated lemon or other types of citrus for a fun look.
- Add a pop of color with a lemon twist or peel. You can also use other citrus fruits such as lime, orange, or grapefruit.
- Pierce a honey or lemon-flavored gummy candy or two on a cocktail skewer.
