Vanilla White Russian Ingredients

How to Make a White Russian
Now, White Russians are not a new thing for me. I have Caramel White Russian and Pumpkin Spice White Russian recipes. I love me some Kahlua. It is the perfect liquor for coffee lovers. The great thing about Kahlua is they also now make flavored versions of their liquor.
Making the perfect White Russians is more of an art than a science. Like most cocktails I make, you can use whatever ratio you prefer but I tend to do half Kahlua, a quarter vodka, and a quarter cream.
I do not use a cocktail shaker but rather pour directly into a cocktail glass. I will use a straw drink stir to sip and stir to combine the Vanilla White Russian. You can make these in a large or small glass. Just be sure to fill the glass full of ice. The key to the perfect White Russian is it being ice cold.
The best part of this cocktail is you can drink it instead of eating dessert and you will feel like you are so fancy. I mean who doesn't look fancy drinking a White Russian.
