Your Weekend Drink: Colorado Bulldog

December 10, 2010 Leave a comment

If you like White Russians, you might want to give the Colorado Bulldog a try. The difference: you add an equal amount of cream and cola, instead of just cream.

Far out

1 shot vodka
1 shot Kahlua
Equal parts cream (or milk) and Coca-Cola


This Weekend’s Drink: Hot Mulled Wine

Warm Goodness

In a continuing effort to bring you, our loyal, sexy readers, a litany of choices for your weekend imbibing, we offer you this holiday drink, a tasty treat to sip on while the decorations sparkle in front of the fireplace and the snowflakes pile up outside.

Although we caution you from ordering this at a bar. This is most decidedly an at-home drink.


Stick one clove into the peel of each of the orange wedges. Put 6 wedges into a stainless-steel pan, along with the red wine, brandy or Cointreau, broken cinnamon stick, mixed spice and sugar.
Warm gently over low heat for 10-15 min, then turn off the heat and let the flavours infuse for 10 min.
Ladle the wine into glasses, leaving out the orange wedges and straining out the cinnamon pieces.
Take the 6 remaining wedges, make a cut between the pith and the flesh and hook one on to the side of each glass.
Add the fresh cinnamon sticks to serve.

The full recipe is found here.
