When it’s cocktail time at our house, we like to try new drinks, but we like to keep things simple! Typically, I’m going to go for the glass of wine, but sometimes it’s fun to play bartender and make a mixed drink, and one of our favorites is a white Russian drink.

It’s cold, it’s creamy, and it’s perfect for sipping on after dinner. Plus, it’s really easy to make – you don’t need a bunch of different liquors and mixers. Just three ingredients plus some ice is all you need.

What is a White Russian?

Not going to lie – for a long time, I totally thought it was a Russian drink, but then I learned the backstory. The “Russian” part of the name is a nod to the vodka in the drink, which is a classic Russian liquor.

It actually came to be after someone invented the Black Russian drink around 1949. That one is made with just coffee liqueur and vodka. Years later, someone thought to add some cream, and the White Russian was born.

The combination of coffee, cream, and vodka makes a great cocktail! This recipe makes one drink, and it takes less than five minutes to make.
