How to make a Colorado Bulldog

Greetings mi gente; while I’m up past my ankles in snow here in Wisconsin, this Bartender 608 Drink of the Week (#608DOTW) is a favorite among our West Coast brethren.  The Colorado Bulldog!

You can shake this drink or, prepare it layered–CAUTION; if you’re layering, do it in the following order or your milk will curdle therefore forcing you to maybe gag and turn this into a shaken drink anyway…

In a highball glass add the following

 

  • 1 part vodka [1st]
  • 1 part coffee liquor [2nd]
  • 2 parts Half and Half or cream poured over the back of a bar spoon [3rd]
  • Cola [Final to Top-Off]

Enjoy!  Salud! Cheers!  Please SUBSCRIBE, like and comment!

Anti-Freeze Shots!

This weeks DOTW = Anti-Freeze!

In Madison WI this week it’s been as high as 61 degrees and lows in the 20’s; but there’s no such thing as climate change…

Anti-Freeze Shots; for two (2) shots grab:

* 2-tall shot glasses and rim with margarita salt (or, skip this step if you like)
* .75 oz. Blanco Tequila
* 1.0 oz. Apple Vodka
* .25 oz. Blue Curacao
* .25 oz. Sweetened Lime Juice
* Ginger Ale (optional)

In a Boston shaker with a scoop of ice add the top four (4) ingredients and SHAKE.  Strain into the shot glasses and, if you need training wheels (meaning the shot is stronger than you like) add a splash of ginger ale on top.

Please click the photo for the Video & subscribe to my channel and blog and comment on how you like the shot.
Enjoy! Salud! Cheers!
