It’s one of those drinks you just never think to order, but when you do you indulge and enjoy because it’s just THAT good. It’s a simple cocktail really, but for any coffee lover, it’s sort of the greatest treat ever. I love a good cocktail that works as double duty for a morning beverage too (don’t judge!). I decided to spice this classic white russian recipe up a bit and add vanilla vodka instead of just plain old vodka. Also, I garnished it with a little cinnamon and cinnamon stick. It adds a warmth to it that helps make you feel just that much more cozy while drinking it. You’ll want to snuggle up on the couch with a warm blanket with this cold winter weather and enjoy.
Classic White Russian
- 1.5 oz vodka
- 1 oz Kahlua
- 2 oz heavy cream
- Cinnamon stick
- Pour vodka and Kahlua in a glass over ice. Float heavy cream over liquors and garnish with cinnamon stick.
- To float heavy cream, grab a spoon and turn it right side down at a slight angle. Slowly pour cream over spoon so it floats on the top. Stir gently.
