White Russians are my absolute favorite dessert drink. When I was in college, I always kept a bottle of vodka and Kahlua on hand in my freezer. Milk was only consumed when it was mixed in with a White Russian. Even when I was a bartender in Spain (where milk is an unheard of mixer) I would whip them up during after-hours, and taught all of my fellow Spanish bar-mates how to make them. As I was thinking about milk today, I realized I haven't had a White Russian in forever (definition of forever: a few months). If you have yet to have one, make one now—they are super yummy! For the recipe,
1 1/2 oz Vodka
3/4 oz Kahlua
3/4 oz Cream or Milk
- Mix the vodka and kahlua together in a cocktail shaker.
- Pour into glass filled with ice. Float the cream/milk on top.
