A white Russian is a sweet cocktail made from vodka, coffee liqueur and cream or milk served with ice, it's great to serve after dinner or on a night out. It's a very popular cocktail, which has been around for years. Despite it's name it's not actually Russian,it's only gets it's name as Vodka is it's main ingredient. Due to it's rich and creamy taste and despite not being able to taste the alcohol there still is a lot in there.
Best to have only one of these on a night out through,otherwise you will feel sick and have at the start of the night when I tend to find it lines my stomach, otherwise if you have it later on, the milk or cream curdles in your stomach.
To make a White Russian you'll need the following ingredients:
1½ measures vodka
1 measure coffee liqueur Tia Maria or Kahlua
1 measure light cream
Ice cubes or crushed ice
Please note Baileys can be substituted for the liqueur and cream.
Pick an unusual shapes glass, dip the rim of the glass into lemon juice then dip into sugar, this adds wow to your cocktail.
Pour the vodka, coffee liqueur, cream and ice into a cocktail shaker and shake vigorously then strain over an ice cubed in the glass, sprinkle some chocolate powder on top then add a cherry at the end of a cocktail stick.
Pour the vodka over an ice cubes glass, then add the coffee liqueur, then the cream, then drink out of a straw
Mix the vodka and coffee liqueur in a cocktail shaker and strain over the ice cubes in the glass, shaking the cream in order to thicken it before pouring it, then using the back of a spoon, layer the measure of cream on top.
The look is all important for your cocktail, why not add a fancy straw or some sparklers. Adding some exotic fruit to make it more colourful.
Summary: A delicious
