Ok, raise your hands if you have a coffee addiction. Yep, me too. I like lots of cream in my coffee too. And sweet syrupy goodness. You know, like a good caramel macchiato. Naturally, a caramel white Russian truly hit the spot one late Tuesday night..Or a Monday. Let’s be honest, Mondays normally drive me to drink more than a Tuesday does.
Which is why I love this coffee-flavored cocktail. Let’s be honest, I have a problem. I love coffee. Most of the time my body is saying you need coffee but my brain knows I will need sleep. So, I choose booze. Afterall, don’t we all need a nightcap?
Caramel White Russians
To be exact. And then…
Half and Half.
Stir it on up. Go ahead a put a coffee stirrer in it. A thin little straw is just what you need to sip on this. While the recipe below spells out the ratio of the ingredients, feel free to add more or less cream to these Caramel White Russians. I might love cream as much as I love coffee, so I make sure to use plenty of cream.
