PREPARATION_TECHNIQUES

Is it necessary to mix the ingredients of a Colorado Bulldog before adding the cream?

With an alcohol content of 5.14%, the Colorado Bulldog is relatively moderate compared to other creamy cocktails, such as the White Russian, which tends to have a higher alcohol content due to similar ingredients but in different proportions.
