Naughty Dog

Naughty Dog highball cocktail with aged rum, coffee liqueur, root beer, cream, and nutmeg

The Naughty Dog is a simple drink – but it’s a tasty one! Hailing from Erik Castro at Polite Provisions in San Diego, it’s a twist on the old Colorado Bulldog (which we have listed as a “Paralyzer”). Aged rum adds a little complexity in place of the original’s vodka, while root beer adds some interesting spice in place of cola.

As with all root beer cocktails, much depends on the soda you choose. If you can find an indie brand with more spice and less sweetness than the big names, it’ll do well in this drink.

Dark rum or spiced rum will work here, too – but it takes a little more trial and error to ensure that the spices and flavors in the rum don’t conflict with or run roughshod over those in the root beer.

Ingredients

Instructions

Build in a tall ice-filled glass in the order given, gently topping with the cream (you can whip it first, if you’d like) and sprinkling the nutmeg over the drink.

Gut mit Luft nach oben

Ich war auf der Suche nach einer Cocktail Datenbank mit der ich mir zuverlässig die Drinks anzeigen lassen kann, für die ich auch die Zutaten im Hause habe. Mit Cocktail Flow klappt das leider nicht verlässlich. Dieses Programm macht das vorbildlich und vor allem listet es die Cocktails auch danach auf, wo mir noch eine, zwei usw. Zutaten fehlt. So kann ich auch immer schauen was ich mir ggf. noch kaufen sollte. Die Auswahl an Getränken ist gut, jedoch mit wenig Sirup-haltigen. Hier würd ich mir mehr Rezepte wünschen wo man die div. Fruchtsirupe einsetzen kann. Auch gibt es leider keine Möglichkeit Cocktails als Favoriten zu kennzeichnen oder das Rezept zu exportieren. Da das Programm nur in Englisch ist muss man in der Zutatenliste manchmal googlen was damit gemeint ist. Mit ein paar Rezepten mehr, Favoritenfunktion und Lokalisierung gibt es fünf Sterne.
Translation: I was looking for a cocktail database with which I can reliably display the drinks for which I also have the ingredients in the house. Unfortunately, this does not work reliably with cocktail flow. This program does the exemplary and above all it lists the cocktails also after, where I still missing one, two etc. ingredients. So I can always look what I should possibly buy. The selection of drinks is good, but with little syrup-containing. Here I would want more recipes where you can use the div. Fruit syrups. Unfortunately, there is no way to mark cocktails as favorites or to export the recipe. Since the program is only in English you have to googling in the list of ingredients sometimes what is meant by that. With a few more recipes, favorites and localization, there are five stars.
