Black Russian

Simple, deliciously smooth and a true classic. This is a real value for money drink with 35% alcohol, and yet it is really easy to drink.

You will need:
3/4 oz (22ml) coffee liqueur (Kahlúa)
1 ½ oz (44ml) smooth vodka (Grey Goose)
Ice
Old-fashioned glass

Instructions:
Put ice into the glass and pour the ingredients over. Let the drink sit for about half a minute to cool before drinking.

Tips:
Do not let the drink sit for too long or the ice cubes will melt and dilute it.
The basic measurements are 2 parts vodka to 1 part coffee liqueur. The measurements given in oz are for a standard bar size serving.
To make a White Russian, simply add a splash of light cream or milk. Experiment to find your personal balance.

Enjoy!
