Contrary to its name, the White Russian has nothing to due with the country. The original cocktail the Black Russian was created by Gustave Tops, a Belgian bartender at the Hotel Metropole in Brussels. The addition of cream came from brand Southern Comfort in 1949 in a rendition of the recipe made for their short lived coffee liqueur. Our take on the White Russian introduces RumChata a Wisconsin creation inspired by a classic Spanish drink Horchata. This contradiction seems like the perfect compliment to the already confusing origins of this cocktail. RumChata adds a sweet cinnamon toast spice flavor that pairs well with the Kahlua coffee liqueur and toasted marshmallow and cereal notes from our flagship OOLA Vodka
1.5oz OOLA Vodka
Heavy Whipping Cream
Crushed Cane Cane
For this simple drink everything is added to the Glass. First in a rocks glass add the vodka and kahlua. Fill the glass with ice, then add the RumChata Floater and finish with a little extra cream. Crush up some candy cane for a peppermint mocha style garnish.
