Born in Belgium, The White Russian takes its name from its dominant spirit – vodka. Invented in 1949 at the Hotel Metropole in Brussels, this simple recipe for the decadent combination of Kahlùa, Vodka and Cream is one of the first cocktails I ever had and a favorite to this day.
Here is some equipment you might need:
- 1 1/2 oz Vodka
- 3/4 oz Kahlùa
- 3/4 oz cream
- Step 1 Add all the ingredients to a shaker.
- Step 2 Fill with ice and shake until chilled
- Step 3 Strain into a rocks glass
