The proportions are perfect in this recipe, provided you use GOOD vodka. If you are above the age of 40, you have probably found a premium vodka you can enjoy straight, or over ice. Use this one! However, if you are in your early 20's and it's more of a challenge just to see how much of the cheapest liquor available you CAN possibly drink and still get up the next day, , then you will definitely want to adjust up the measures of Coffee Liqueur and Cream. I was 20 once. I remember. I'm 45 now and I drink premium liquor at a much slower pace!-12 Feb 2009

White Russian is possibly the best drink in the world. After making about two dozen I decided that the best proportion is 2 Tbsps vodka, 3 Tbsp Coffee Liqueur, 3 Tbsp cream(lightly beaten, or you can use shaker if you have one), 3 Tbsp milk + lots of ice And don't forget the straw!-19 Feb 2006

7 White Russian Twists to Try Right Now

Even if you’ve never had a White Russian before, you’re probably familiar with the drink, possibly from the 1998 film “The Big Lebowski,” in which Jeff Bridges’ character, The Dude, would drink one at every opportunity.

The White Russian is a combination of vodka, Kahlúa (or another coffee liqueur) and cream. It derived from the Black Russian, a cocktail made with just vodka and Kahlúa that was created in the 1940s by bartender Gustave Tops at the Hotel Metropole in Brussels. The White Russian wasn’t born until the 1960s, when someone decided to add a touch of cream to the two-ingredient forebear, creating the rich coffee-laced milk punch. Neither drink is Russian in origin the name comes from the use of vodka as the base spirit—one often associated with Russia.

These are seven White Russian variations, some closely following the vodka, coffee liqueur and cream template and a few others that deviate slightly with additional vanilla or chocolate flavors. We don’t recommend drinking all of these coffee-flavored milk punches all in one go—their richness assures you’d end up with a wonky stomach—but each makes a fantastic nightcap or liquid dessert.

White Russian

Made with coffee liqueur, vodka, and cream, the White Russian is a deliciously sweet cocktail with origins dating back to the mid-1900s.



  1. Fill an old fashioned glass with ice.
  2. Add the vodka and Kahlua and stir.
  3. Top with light cream and serve.


Here are two popular variations on the White Russian, its sister cocktail, the Black Russian and the vodka-free version, the Sombrero.

Black Russian

Fill an old fashioned glass with ice. Add the vodka and coffee liqueur and stir.


Fill and old fashioned glass with ice. Add the coffee liqueur, top with cream and stir.

Making a White Russian is as easy as adding all the ingredients to a glass over ice. We like to fill an old fashioned glass with ice, more than you think you need because it will melt down as you pour in the alcohol and cream, and start with the Kahlua first.

Next you can add the vodka. Plain vodka for this cocktail recipe, nothing flavored. You don&rsquot have to use the most expensive vodka for this drink but I wouldn&rsquot use bottom shelf vodka, either.

My rule of thumb is that you have your mixing booze and your sipping straight up booze. The mixing booze should still be something that you like that flavor of, not something that you&rsquore trying to cover up with other ingredients.

The last ingredient, the cream, is poured in slowly or over the back of a spoon so that you get these nice, deep swirls as we&rsquove shown you here&hellip

Some people like to leave this layer as long as it lasts, some like to stir it into the drink to mix the flavors together. There is obviously a gorgeous look to this drink that you&rsquod want to show off before mixing it in, but after serving you can go ahead and stir it up.


This is my favorite drink!!

5. Cold Foam White Russian

As the name implies, this White Russian has a foamy and creamy top that resembles a cup of cold cappuccino. It’s simple yet elegant.

  2. Fill an old-fashioned glass with ice cubes.
  3. Pour the vodka and Kahlua into the glass. Stir with a bar spoon .

Hawaiian White Russian Cocktail

Happy Aloha Friday! It is time for another Koloa Rum cocktail creation. This time it is my take on the White Russian, with a Hawaiian White Russian.

When Koloa Rum Company told me about their amazing Kaua’i Coffee rum last year I couldn’t wait to try it. Eric, the western sales manager was visiting clients here in Las Vegas and I met him at the strip and we sat down to sample it. I was smitten at first sip. It is incredibly smooth, a strong coffee flavor but not overpowering at all, hints of caramel from the sugar cane and such a nice finish to it that it is excellent on its own or as the star in many cocktails.

Koloa rum sent me a bottle of their amazing rum and these adorable rocks glasses as well to try out the rum. I was having a hard time not drinking it all before creating cocktails with it! I do test all my recipes and I was making mini versions so I would have enough left over since I have many cocktails in the works with this delicious rum.

Originally I was going to make this cocktail with Koloa coconut rum, the coffee rum, coconut milk and coconut flakes but then it would be way too overpowering with coconut and not really a White Russian. So what I did was use vodka but less than the cocktail traditionally calls for and I doubled up on the coffee rum. Its a perfect balance of the liquors for this Hawaiian version of the cocktail.

Coconut flakes on top is a must. If you want to toast the coconut first that works too, I didn’t but it would add another level of flavor and a fun little crunch to the cocktail. I adore the smell of toasted coconut but not when I forget I am toasting it and it burns. That is not a fun odor.

I am also very excited to announce that we will be visiting Koloa Rum Company in just a few weeks! Our annual Hawaii vacation is on Kaua’i this year and I can hardly wait. I may or may not have started packing already.

We visited Koloa Rum Company a few years ago, before I started working with them. We took the train tour around the property, which my kids loved, stopped to see the goats, and learned all about the rum production. The tour ended at the gift shop and tasting room. It’s in a gorgeous location and only 15 minutes away from where we are staying this year. My kids are looking forward to the train ride again, I am looking forward to the tasting room again.

I will be sharing tons of pictures on my Instagram of my trip, and probably some on Snapchat. Which I was so reluctant to join, I barely have time for all the social media channels that I am on as it is, but it seems more and more bloggers are joining. I still don’t really understand it since I don’t take selfies, but I will video when we are in Hawaii so you can see the sights along with me. I feel like the old lady trying to be hip with the kids these days. So, if you have Snapchat and want to follow me there, my user name is PinaCocoBlog. Same as my Twitter handle.

Quick notes about the Hawaiian White Russian recipe. I used canned coconut milk, it is thicker than using half and half or coconut milk in a carton and it will look like its not mixing in well when you first add it to the cocktail. You can stir the cocktail well or even add it to a cocktail shaker for a more homogenous mixture. The canned coconut milk has a higher fat content so this is why it looks like it but it still tastes amazing. Feel free to substitute coconut milk in a carton if you want it to look more mixed.

What Does a White Russian Taste Like?

The ingredients in a White Russian are vodka, heavy cream or whole milk, and Kahlúa – three ingredients that, when combined together, create a milky, dessert-like drink that can really only be described as delicious.

Truly, in this case I find "delicious" to be the most apt descriptor. Think of the cream in this drink as a weighted blanket. It takes the edge off the vodka, forcing it to just chill out a little bit, and then snuggles in with the sugary rumness of the Kahlúa.

If you like sweet coffee-flavored foods and desserts (coffee-flavored ice cream, chocolate-covered coffee beans, Affogato), you will like a White Russian. If you like creamy alcoholic drinks like eggnog and Irish coffee, you will like a White Russian. If you like the idea of combining your morning cup of coffee with your afternoon happy hour, you will like a White Russian.

Recipes that Use Kahlua

If you make your own Kahlua or purchase it at the store after you have a White Russian Cocktail (or two) you can use some of that coffee liqueur to make up some of these other sweet treats! OR these Salted Caramel Layered Shots from my friend, Jen.

I love these Kahlua Crinkles on my holiday trays, but they don’t have to be pigeon-holed into being a holiday cookie. They are perfect for any time.

Recipes that Use Kahlua:

Did you know that I have my own storefront on Amazon? I have all sorts of items that I love to use, as well as some that are on my wish list. One section is completely full of barware. A great one to browse to up your cocktail game.

Cheers to you, my friends, at the holidays, and every day!
