Naughty Dog | Cocktail Party

Naughty Dog

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.

Terrific Design!

Absolutely love this app. Gives a great visual representation of the ingredients and the user interface is well designed. Been using it to learn how to make cocktails, the descriptions are great about the drinks. As a novice barman, I love that I am learning the origin of the drink and alternative ways to make the drink. Be prepared to have a wide range of alcohol at you disposal! I can make heaps of drinks with the decent home collection I have, but seeing all the recipes what I could make gets me excited! Highly recommended, everyone loves the person who makes excellent drinks!
