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!

*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.
