While I love all the creative cocktails that are appearing every day. New infusions. New uses for old favorites. I have to admit that sometimes I just want a nice, simple classic.
It doesn’t get much easier than a Black Russian, which I found in A Pocket Guide to Cocktails. Really, just two ingredients and you have such a delightful cocktail.
- 2 ounces vodka
- 1 ounce coffee liqueur
- 4-6 cracked ice cubes
- Place the cracked ice in a small, chilled highball glass. Pour the vodka and coffee liqueur over the ice cubes. Stir.
