If you like a smooth, creamy but a kick of caffeine and vodka Cocktail - well, a White Russian is the one for you. It is a sophisticated, and relaxing. The Black Russian first appeared in Cocktail lounges around 1949. It didn't take long for a Mixologist to add something extra - the cream. This addition adds a new and different dimension. If you get a chance, compare the two.
- 2 Shot Vodka
- 1 Shot Coffee Liqueur
- 1/2 Shot Milk
- 1/2 Shot Double Cream
- Place all the ingredients into a Boston Shaker over ice
- Strain into a chilled Old Fashioned tumbler glass
- Dust the top with grated nutmeg
- An alternative is not to shake all the ingredients together, but to layer the two constituents leaving a white top and the Vodka/coffee below. Beware of white Moustaches.
The origins of a White Russian are unknown. The differece bewteen a 'Black Russian' is the cream added to the ingredients.
