How to prepare the Colorado Bulldog

  1. Fill a glass with ice to taste. Pour the vodka and coffee liqueur over the ice.
  2. Add the milk.
  3. Add the cola.
  4. Stir and serve immediately.


You can prepare a vegan version of the cocktail by simply replacing the milk with your favorite plant-based milk: nut milk is particularly suitable for the Colorado Bulldog, but you can also use oat or rice milk. If you have chosen cow’s milk, however, it is preferable to avoid skim milk and use whole milk; for a non-alcoholic version, however, eliminate the vodka and use a cup of espresso instead of the coffee liqueur.

If you prefer a creamier cocktail, you can use cream instead of milk; you can also shake your Colorado Bulldog to give it a slightly more foamy consistency. Also, if you prefer, you can use flavored vodka instead of plain vodka: cherries or berries are ideal, but melon vodka will do just fine too.


We suggest you serve the cocktail immediately after preparing it.
