This drink is quintessentially Colorado for us. We’d never heard of it before living here and of course as soon as we tried it, we fell in love. If you like white russians there’s a good chance you’ll enjoy this one too. It’s a pretty sweet drink that is like the boozy equivalent of a milkshake. Ingredients:
1 shot of Vodka*
1 shot of Coffee Liquor
Equal parts Milk or Cream and Root Beer
Pour all ingredients in a tall glass of ice and stir. Enjoy!
*The quality of the vodka isn’t super important. Because this drink is pretty sweet and there are already a lot of flavors going on to mask any strong vodka taste we usually go with a lower level vodka for this one. No point in spending a lot of money on vodka you’ll hardly notice so just use your favorite or what you have on hand.
