White Russian


Travis and I were just talking about cocktails and a White Russian came up, a few of these will definitely be made this weekend.

White Russian

1 -2 oz vodka

1 oz. Kahlúa or coffee liqueur

1 oz. Creamer

Fill a small tumbler glass with ice. Pour in the vodka, followed by the Kahlúa, and topped off with the creamer. Use a flavored creamer for a little more flavor. Stir gently and enjoy!

Whiskey Old Fashioned

1 -2 oz. Your Favorite Whiskey

Sugar cube

Maraschino Cherry

Dash or Two of Angostura Bitters

Wash (As in seltzer, 7-up, water, sour - whatever your preference)

Orange peel

In an old fashioned glass, crush the sugar cube and the maraschino cherry at the bottom of the glass with a muddler. Fill glass with ice. Pour whiskey into the glass, add a dash or two of bitters and fill with whatever wash you choose (I like to do a press, which is half seltzer and half 7-up). Squeeze orange peel into the glass and give it a good stir. Enjoy!
