White Russians are usually made with milk but I prefer the richness of cream in this delicious cocktail. Great as a nightcap!
The proportions are perfect in this recipe, provided you use GOOD vodka. If you are above the age of 40, you have probably found a premium vodka you can enjoy straight, or over ice. Use this one! However, if you are in your early 20's and it's more of a challenge just to see how much of the cheapest liquor available you CAN possibly drink and still get up the next day, , then you will definitely want to adjust up the measures of Coffee Liqueur and Cream. I was 20 once. I remember. I'm 45 now and I drink premium liquor at a much slower pace! - 12 Feb 2009 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
White Russian is possibly the best drink in the world. After making about two dozen I decided that the best proportion is 2 Tbsps vodka, 3 Tbsp Coffee Liqueur, 3 Tbsp cream(lightly beaten, or you can use shaker if you have one), 3 Tbsp milk + lots of ice And don't forget the straw! - 19 Feb 2006 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
