In this lighter adaptation, the vodka is omitted for a lower-calorie option, focusing on the rich, velvety flavors of coffee liqueur mixed with the fizzy sweetness of cola. The drink is typically served over ice in a highball glass, allowing for a refreshing, yet indulgent experience. It's a favored choice for those seeking the familiar depth of a coffee-flavored liqueur in their cocktail without the higher alcohol content of its traditional counterpart.
