Greetings! As a lover of cocktails, I have always been fascinated by the White Russian. It is a classic drink that has been enjoyed for decades. However, I know some people who do not enjoy the taste of Kahlua, a key ingredient in the traditional White Russian recipe. Hence, I decided to create a recipe that omits Kahlua, but still retains the wonderful taste of this creamy cocktail.
List of Ingredients
- 2 oz vodka
- 1 oz coffee liqueur
- 1 oz heavy cream
List of Instructions
- Fill a rocks glass with ice.
- Pour the vodka and coffee liqueur over the ice.
- Stir well.
- Pour the heavy cream over the back of a spoon to create a layered effect.
- Garnish with a sprinkle of cocoa powder if desired.
