The White Russian cocktail is one of the easiest cocktails in the world to make, and also happens to be one of the most popular, probably because of its sweetness, smooth texture and mellow after taste.
It is made using just 4 vital ingredients – Vodka, Coffee Lequeur, Light Cream, and ice. Of course with any recipe there are variations and it is quite acceptable when making a White Russian to choose from Kahlua, Baileys Irish Cream, or Tia Maria as your Coffee Liqueur ingredient. You may even have a favourite of your own, and that will be quite OK to use as a substitute to test it out and see how it goes. You can even substitute the cream for milk, or vanilla soy milk or even goats milk.
Yet another popular version comes from our Irish friends who mix together one part Vodka and one part Kahlua, then add full cream milk and shake it vigously with ice before pouring the whole lot into a glass tumbler.
