Salted Caramel White Russians
|Salted Caramel White Russians|
The Classic White Russian Cocktails get a contemporary and delicious upgrade with one of the most popular flavors of the season: salted caramel. These Salted Caramel White Russians are the perfect cocktail for fall and the upcoming holiday season.
Several years back my oldest brother unknowingly started a new Thanksgiving tradition. He invited me to join him and his wife for a White Russian on Thanksgiving morning to watch the parade on TV.
As the years have passed, more family members have joined us and we now have snacks (of course!) to accompany the fun. In fact, this gathering has become one of my favorite new traditions. (I realize that some people might question kicking off a long day of drinking and eating with White Russians, but somehow we make it work.)
What Is A White Russian Cocktail?
In case you’ve never tasted a White Russian, it’s similar to a Kahula and Cream (which is essentially just Kahula and Half & Half) plus vodka. The resulting cocktail is like a thin chocolaty milkshake with vodka. Personally, I’m a big fan.
- Caramel sauce to garnish
- 1 part Salted Caramel coffee liqueur Bailey's or Kaluha
- 2 parts Salted Caramel Vodka
- 1 part Half & Half
- In a cocktail shaker, combine the Kahlua, vodka, and half & half. Stir with a spoon to combine.
- Drip caramel sauce down the side of a drinking glass. Add ice until the glass is about three quarters full; then pour in your cocktail. Garnish with a straw and serve.
