Pour Up This Colorado Bulldog Cocktail
Colorado Bulldog Cocktail
If I’m out with Charlie, I always know when our night is over because she will order a Colorado Bulldog. Over our 40 year friendship, I’ve noticed that it’s become her signature, last call cocktail. So last Thursday during our weekly virtual happy hour, I showed her that I remembered by mixing up my own Colorado Bulldog. I slowly sipped it as she laughed, and we all said our goodbyes with promises to “see” each other next week.
Ever had a Colorado Bulldog? It’s like a White Russian, but the Bulldog is finished off with equal amounts of cream and cola, instead of just cream. The cola adds a nice flavor, and makes a creamy drink a little less creamy. Give it a try!
Ingredients for 1 cocktail | Multiply by degree of thirst and divide by number of girlfriends!
1 ounce vodka
1 ounce coffee liqueur*
2 ounces cream (or milk)
2 ounces cola
Fill an old fashioned glass with ice.
Pour in the vodka, and follow with the coffee liqueur*.
Fill glass with equal amounts of cream (or milk) and cola.
*The recipe suggests that the vodka and coffee liqueur are equal pours in this recipe. You may be used to a 2:1 ratio in your White Russian, but give this one a try. It brings in a nice boost to the coffee flavor.
