White Russian


While this classic cocktail is white, it isn’t from Russia.  Nor was it invented by a Russian or even for a Russian!  The black Russian was created by a bartender in Brussels for an American Diplomat in 1949.  The White Russian first appeared in the 1960’s.  Whatever the origins, it is delicious and decadent.

Technically, this should be shaken.  However, the streaks of white and brown are mesmerizing.  So add the cream last, serve it with a stir stick and allow your guest to gawk in awe before they stir in the cream.
