White Russian Cocktail – The perfect recipe for the classic cocktail. Made with Kahlua, Vodka, and heavy cream over ice. This easy cocktail is sure to be a hit.
I think that white russians might just be the prettiest cocktail. Something about the very distinct layers before you give it a stir really make it so visually appealing. Now the thing about white russians is that they don’t just look good, they also taste great! Made with just 3 ingredients – Kahlua, vodka, and heavy cream – it’s about the easiest cocktail ever to make.
This recipe is for a classic white russian without any additional flavors. There is some dispute about what the correct ratio of the three ingredients but this is the ratio that I enjoy the most. You can always adjust to taste and add more of any of the ingredients.
