What is a White Russian cocktail?

A white Russian cocktail is made with vodka, cream, and Kahlúa. Kahlúa is a coffee-flavored liqueur that contains rum, sugar, and arabica coffee.

The idea for this drink first got noticed in the ’60s when someone decided to add cream to a Black Russian cocktail. It then gained popularity from the movie “The Big Lebowski”.

Dairy-free White Russian

You can make this cocktail dairy-free by substituting the heavy cream for full-fat coconut milk.

Change the ratio and suggestions for White Russian

If you usually like more of a sweet coffee flavor and not an overwhelming vodka flavor I would suggest trying a 1:1:1 ratio.

Also if you do like a 2:1:1 ratio but less of a creamy taste try just a splash of heavy cream, half and half, or whole milk.

Tip – try adding two drops of vanilla extract for a richer and creamier taste.

When making this creamy coffee-flavored cocktail any vodka will do. No need to spend too much money on the best vodka, unless you want to.
