Friday's Happy Hour: White Russian

What better way to finish our cream-filled week than with a nice creamy cocktail -- the White Russian.

It's the ultimate drink where east (vodka) meets west (us westerners love our coffee). Ah yes, the White Russian, unifying hemispheres.

Here's how to make it:

  • 1 fluid oz. coffee-flavored liqueur (like Kahlua)
  • 1 fluid oz. vodka
  • 1/2 cup cream (you can substitute milk if desired)

In a mixing glass, combine the coffee-flavored liqueur, vodka, and cream. Pour over ice in a highball glass. Keep in mind that once the ice melts, it will taste more like drinking skim milk. If you're nursing sipping your cocktail, you might want to pour it into a chilled highball glass instead, minus the ice. 

Are you a fan of the creamy White Russian?
