Colorado Bulldog Martini

Sort of a milkshake... and doesn't taste boozy at all.

I was in Oklahoma (!) for business, traveling with a peer who didn't drink much.
He ordered a Smith & Kearns, the 20 something server, promptly saying "never heard of it!".
I told him (I'm SO helpful....) to ask the bartender and then sat back and watched from the table.  The bartender shook his head, and immediately consulted "the Google".
He starts to start pouring, I see he has found success.
Next thing you know, our server comes back and says, "it's called a Colorado Bulldog".
Really?  I hate to argue with you at a business dinner, but really I would like to go to town with you on this subject.
So when I got back to Seattle, I started looking at all the choices.
It's so confusing to figure out the myriad of drinks that are SO Much a like....

Here's a primer of the drinks that are so much alike:
  • Smith and Currans- Kahlua (or Creme de Cacao), cream and soda
  • Smith and Wesson- Same as above with VODKA
    White russian- Vodka, Kahlua and Cream 
  • Black Russian- Vodka and Kahlua
  • Colorado Bull Dog- Kahlua, Vodka, Cream and Coke
  • Canadian Paralyzer- Vodka, Kahlua, Milk and Coke

My recipe for a Colorado Bulldog, a little bit of all of them

Makes 4 martinis

4 jiggers Vodka, regular or vanilla flavored
2 jiggers Kahlua
2 jiggers Godiva Chocolate liqueur or Creme de Cacao
2 jiggers Half & Half
A float of Coca-Cola on each martini

Dip the rims of four martini glasses, gently wetted around the rims, with you finger dipped in water, then the into unsweetened cocoa powder.
Pour eveything, except the coke,  into an ice filled martini shaker.
Pour into glasses, add a float of coke and serve.
