One of my favorite drinks of all time is the White Russian. I love the Kahlúa mixed with vodka and heavy cream – it’s almost like a dessert! I’m used to the classic drink, but have you ever tried a White Russian recipe that’s a big different?
We’re bringing a pot of Irish gold with our Irish White Russian recipe. This cocktail recipe is a whimsical play on the iconic, legendary and stalwart cocktail. We decided to have a bit of fun and replaced the longstanding vodka with the one-upmanship of Irish Whiskey. We horse traded the Kahlúa for a spot of bright-eyed and busy-tailed coffee liqueur, and we’ve also swirled into the mix a thimbleful (or more) of Bailey’s Irish Cream liqueur. After a taste of our decidedly Gaelic infusion tell us we’ve done something wrong. Oh, and by the way, Happy St. Patrick’s Day.
