White Russian with Coffee

White Russian with Coffee...I like this pre-mixed marbled look.

A while ago you saw me post this recipe for Black Russians with Coffee from Betty Rosbottom’s cookbook on the blog. Well, right below that recipe on the page is one for White Russians with Coffee. It’s basically the same recipe except you add in heavy whipping cream. We had another productive day today and figured we’d have another little treat. Remembering how heavy the vodka was the last time we made this (we prefer slightly less in our drink), I added more coffee liqueur and less vodka. The recipe you see below is as it appeared in the cookbook though. I trust that as alcohol-consenting adults you can all adjust according to your own tastes. The thing that made this drink for me was the heavy whipping cream. I have never had a White Russian before, but this has converted me. The heavy cream made this so sweet and lovely. I’ll probably always opt for this one rather than the Black Russian from now on.

White Russian with Coffee
coarsely crushed ice
1/4 cup vodka
2 tablespoons Kahlua or other coffee liqueur
3-4 tablespoons chilled or room temperature brewed coffee
1 tablespoon heavy or whipping cream

1. Fill a short 8-10 ounce old-fashioned glass with ice.
2. Pour the vodka and coffee liqueur over the ice and stir.
3. Add 3 tablespoons coffee to the glass and stir.
4. Taste and, if you prefer a stronger coffee flavor, stir in the additional tablespoon of coffee.
5. Add the cream and swirl or stir to blend.
