  • This classic cocktail, Black Russian, takes its name from the black coffee and vodka which make it. Perfect for an after-dinner cocktail or a Christmas Day treat!


    • 1 1/2 oz vodka
    • 3/4oz coffee liqueur
    • Crushed ice


    • Mix the vodka and coffee liqueur in a cocktail shaker with some ice.

    • Shake for at least 30 seconds to combine the flavours and allow the ice to melt.

    • Remove the end of the shaker so the drink can pour out, but not the ice.

    • Pour your Black Russian into a chilled Martini glass and enjoy!
