Cocktail Wednesday - White Russian

This was my pick.  The White Russian.  (recipe from here.)

Ingredients:

Kahlua (1 pt)
Vodka (2 pts)
Cream (1 pt)


I had had Kahlua and cream before, but never an actual White Russian.  To make the drink, you pour the vodka and Kahlua over the ice and then add the cream (they suggested pouring it over the back of a spoon, which I did).
  
made for very pretty drinks -- however, you want to stir before drinking.  I think the vodka rises to the top or something.



Very tasty and an improvement over the Kahlua and cream.  They both taste like chocolate milk, but with the White Russian there's a kick that missing from the other, which is a good thing because it is super fattening -- and I could stop at just one, not so easy with the K&C.

Next week's drink is the "Orangini".  This is a drink that Nevada and Co. created.

Ingredients:

Sparkling wine or champagne - 3 oz
Peach Schnaps - 0.5 oz
Blood Orange soda - 2 oz

It's a twist on the Bellini.  Hope you can join us (whoever "you" are.)

This one sounds really good. I'm pretty sure we have Vodka and cream, but probably no Kahlua.
