Honey Badger Gets Cocktail Tribute, But He Don't Care

​Every hour is happy hour for The Crazy Nastyass Honey Badger. So when we heard there was a drink named the Honey Badger at Cocina 10, the new restaurant attached to the Crescent Ballroom music venue (open last month in downtown Phoenix), we had to try it.

Made with American Honey Bourbon, Ginger Beer, lime, and Bitters, this drink bites back like the Honey Badger's cobra snack with a little bit of spritz, a little sweet, and a lot sour. Unless you're the Honey Badger - because he's crazy - it's probably not the drink you'll want at the beginning of the evening. But once you've prepped your palette for three bitter ingredients mixed with bourbon, it's a kicky, oddly refreshing, cocktail.

Honey Badger would pair his namesake drink with whatever animal walked by; check out the video after the jump.

Uploaded in January, "The Crazy Nastyass Honey Badger" has more than 23 million views on YouTube, leading to a Pistachios commercial and book deal for its mockingly effeminate narrator, Randall.


Cocina 10 is located at 308 N. 2nd Ave., Phoenix, 85003. Open at 4 p.m. daily, Cocina 10 serves food until 1 a.m. The Honey Badger is $8, but come during Happy Hour (4 to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday) for $1 off all drinks.
