The White Russian

This Friday if you’re looking to start Happy Hour a little early, celebrate a successful week with a truly decadant drink that will ease you ever so nicely into the weekend.  The White Russian, a personal favorite of mine, is not a Russian drink at all, but derived the name because of the vodka content.


Drink Recipe Ingredients:

  • 1 oz.  Belvedere Vodka
  • 0.5 oz. Kahlua
  • 2 oz. cream
  • 1 sprinkle(s) nutmeg

Drink Preparation:

  • Add cream, Kahlua Liqueur, Belvedere Vodka.
  • Shake with ice and strain into an ice-filled rocks glass.
  • Garnish with a sprinkle nutmeg.

If you’re familiar with the White Russian and are looking to mix things up then here are some variations for your cocktail:

Blind Russian – made with Bailey’s Irish Cream instead of cream

White Cuban – made with rum instead of vodka

Blushin’ Russian made with raspberry vodka
