This flip cocktail is inspired by the bears of the Canadian West and encapsulates the warm, playful, and complex nature bears bring to our environment. A bear hug is a homage to a bears' multi-faceted personality, with candied fruit and marmalade flavours complimented by rich citrus sweetness and a earthy brown mane delivered by Blacks’ coffee liqueur. Open your arms and embrace the bear hug.
