FAQ's

PREPARATION_TECHNIQUES

How should the ingredients be combined for a Paralyser?

For a Paralyser, start by pouring the coffee liqueur and vodka into a highball glass filled with ice. Then, top up the glass with equal parts of cola and milk. Gently stir the mixture to combine the ingredients well without creating too much froth. The drink should be served cold and not shaken, but stirred.

INGREDIENT_SUBSTITUTIONS

Can I substitute the coffee liqueur in a Paralyser with something non-alcoholic?

Yes, if you're looking to make a non-alcoholic version or just want to avoid coffee liqueur, you can substitute it with a coffee-flavored syrup or a non-alcoholic coffee liqueur alternative. Adjust the amount to taste, as syrups can be sweeter than liquor.

SERVING_SUGGESTIONS

What is the best way to serve a Paralyser?

The Paralyser is best served in a highball glass over ice, ensuring that the drink remains cold. The combination of coffee liqueur, vodka, cola, and milk gives it a unique taste that's best enjoyed when chilled. Don't forget to stir gently before serving to ensure that the flavors are well mixed.

ALCOHOL_CONTENT_COMPARISON

How does the alcohol content of a Paralyser compare to other cocktails?

At an alcohol content of 1.8%, the Paralyser is on the lower end of the spectrum compared to many other cocktails. This makes it a lighter option for those who prefer a less potent drink, suitable for enjoying over a longer period without becoming overly intoxicating.

DIETARY_CONSIDERATIONS

Is the Paralyser suitable for those with lactose intolerance?

Given that the Paralyser contains milk, it might not be suitable for individuals with lactose intolerance. However, you can easily substitute the milk with a lactose-free alternative or a plant-based milk like almond, soy, or oat milk to cater to dietary restrictions.
