Black Russian Cocktail
I have recently started to love coffee flavored cocktails like the classic Espresso Martini.
And this Black Russian Recipe is super easy and delicious!
What Does a Black Russian Taste Like?
It tastes like a slightly sweet vodka coffee.
What is in a Black Russian Cocktail?
You only need two ingredients:
- Kahlua or another coffee liqueur
Is Kahlua an alcohol?
Yes, but it has a lower alcohol percentage, typically around 20%.
Hard liquors such as vodka and whiskey tend to be around 40%.
Which Ingredient Changes a Black Russian to a White Russian?
A White Russian also adds heavy cream to the drink.
Does a Black Russian Contain Coke?
No, but you can add Coke to make it a Long Black Russian.
There is also a Colorado Bulldog which is a White Russian with Coke in it.
How to Make a Black Russian Drink
No shaking or special steps here.
All you need to do is pour both the vodka and Kahlua over ice in the glass and stir to combine them.
- 1 ½ ounces vodka (3 Tablespoons)
- 1 ounce Kahlua or another coffee liqueur (2 Tablespoons)
- Fill a glass with ice.
- Pour the vodka and Kahlua over the ice.
- Stir and serve.
