The Black Russian may be the easiest cocktail going. You only need two ingredients: Vodka and Kahlua. The following recipe produces a drink on the dry side. If you prefer a sweeter drink, feel free to add more Kahlua. You might also consider using flavored vodkas, or top the drink off with a splash of cola. How about adding a scoop of ice-cream? The Black Russian will be one of the most versatile cocktails in your repertoire.
- 2 oz Vodka
- 1 oz Kahlua
Pour the vodka into a highball glass filled with ice. Add the Kahlua and stir. Strain the drink into a cocktail glass filled with new ice.
