If you like anything with a chocolate flavor, you'll love this drink. I got the recipe from one of the bartenders at a large establishment in Dallas, Texas. They make them slightly different than the traditional White Russian. If the drink is a little strong for you, increase the amount of Coke and/or half-and-half a bit. I keep all of the ingredients chilled in the fridge, and use no ice, but that's just my personal preference; traditionally they are served over ice. You can prepare multiple servings ahead of time, and store in a pitcher in the fridge for a day or two.
- Pour Kahlua and vodka into glass.
- Add half-and-half and Coke.
- Stir gently.
- Add ice if desired.
Actually, with coke, it's called a Colorado Bulldog. White Russian's DOES NOT have coke in them.
I have been making these for years; around here, we call them Colorado Bulldogs, and I think they favor a "pumped up' coke float. Really my favorite way to have a White Russian! I don't stir mine all the way, cause the older gentleman, who used to tend bar at an establishment I frequented, said the trick with one of these is to pull the straw up thru the drink, to get all the effects: kahlua, vodka, cream...He didn't tell me about the Coke! :-) Thanks for sharing, Karen Anne Newton RN.
