I found these recipes in the April 2008 issue of the magazine 'Australian Good Taste'. Apparently, this coffee-flavoured cocktail was first mixed at the Hotel Metropole in Brussels in 1949. Cola Black Russian and White Russian with Vodka and Cream are obviously direct descendants of Black Russian! How much cola you use in Cola Black Russian and how much cream you use in White Russian with Vodka and Cream will obviously depend both on the size of your glass and the portions that best suit your taste preferences! There is an inconsistency in the spelling of "'Kahlúa" in this recipe because Zaar would not accept this spelling in the list of ingredients. Intriguing! Not to worry: just relax and enjoy your choice of Black Russian, Cola Black Russian or White Russian With Vodka and Cream.
- BLACK RUSSIAN: Fill a serving glass with ice; pour over the Kahlúa and vodka; use a swizzle stick or spoon to stir; and serve.
- COLA BLACK RUSSIAN: Fill a tall glass with ice; pour over the Kahlúa and vodka; top with cola; stir and serve.
- WHITE RUSSIAN WITH VODKA AND CREAM: Fill a tall glass with ice; pour over the Kahlúa and vodka; stir in cream with a swizzle stick or spoon and serve.
I like the Kahlua Vanilla White Russians so I decided to make that one. I also added some vanilla extract and milk and it tasted just as good but better being able to control the amount of liquor (ie put less). I don't drink much but I could see this being something I'd make as a sweet nighttime treat. I also used some to make milkshakes, yum.
I made the whit russian, but thinkin' I'll try the cola one later on. Very good...
I made the black russian. It's great. But after I decided to add whole milk (instead of cream) to do the White Russian. I think it's even better. But I like both. Thanks Bluemoon. Made for Please Review My Recipe.
