The addition of cola introduces a familiar sweetness and carbonation that makes the drink more palatable, while a squeeze of fresh lime juice adds a bit of tang and brightness to the mix. Served in a highball glass, this drink presents a classic look with a contemporary twist, marrying the rich depth of brandy with the versatile backbone of vodka, all softened by the popular, caffeinated zing of cola.

SERVING_SUGGESTIONS

What is the best way to serve the King Konger to enhance its flavors?
