Happy Hour: White Russian

You might hear me mention White Russians as much as I mention caffeine in my posts. I love coffee. And I love Kahlua. Coffee is what gets me going during the day. A White Russian on the rocks is how I spend a lot of my Friday nights, as I type away or watch a movie.

But what IS a White Russian. Well, it was the drink of choice of the Dude from the Big Lebowski. It's cool, has a coffee flavor and is a nice drink to just chill with. It is called "white" because of the cream (or milk) that is added. And it is referred to as Russian because of the vodka.

Ingredients:
5 parts Vodka
2 parts Coffee Liqueur - like Kahlua
3 parts cream - I often substitute milk. Shake the milk before adding to thicken it.

Then you pour over ice and enjoy!

Order it at a bar next time you go out with the girls or a date night! It's high on my favorites list.
