Thank you for sharing this scenario with us. As for now, it is not a present feature of the Kendo UI Drawer but it might be considered as a new one in one of the upcoming releases.
A possible alternative I could offer is the Kendo UI Menu widget:
If you have the time you could submit a Drower feature enhancement in our UserVoice portal. Once it receives a reasonable number of votes and we are sure that this is the right direction to go it will be implemented.
Let me know if you have any questions.
