Black Russian Cocktail

The Black Russian is a classic cocktail and the basis for several cocktails that came from this fabulous combination.  The Black Russian is simply 2 ingredients served over ice.  
Add cream and its called a White Russian.  As soon as Bailey's was released some brilliant cocktail artist thought to replace the cream of the white Russian with Bailey's and thus the Mudslide was born.  Take that one step further and you have my old classic favorite Frozen Mudslide.

So you see it may be simple, but its perfect simplicity led to brilliant creations.

So do you love the Black Russian or do you think you love the White Russian more?  Check it out here.

One of the top 5 requested cocktails in the world; the Long Island Iced Tea, is made with 5 spirits and actually tastes like sweet iced tea.

  2. While you were listing spin-off drinks you forgot my favorite, The Colorado Bulldog! Pour the Black Russian in a tall glass of ice, add milk(or Half&half) top with a splash of Coke. Yummie!
