Russian Cocktail

Here’s a 2-ounce cocktail that’s ghostly white and is a really accessible recipe for most people. I found this one in Gary Regan’s Bartender’s Bible and it’s pretty different from it’s popular brother, the White Russian.

Remember that the general rule of thumb is if a drink is all spirits (liquors, liqueurs, vermouth), you should stir it, and if a cocktail has citrus or cream, you should shake it. Freeze a cordial glass to get it nice an cold, then stir this drink with as much ice as you can for as long as you can. You’ll end up with a nice, cold, chocolaty drink:

Russian Cocktail

  • 1 oz vodka
  • 1/2 oz white creme de cacao
  • 1/2 oz gin
  • stir with lots of ice and serve in a chilled cordial glass

    a similar cocktail that bears a female Russian name is “Ninotchka”

    1 1/2 ounce vodka
    1/2 ounce creme de cacao (clear)
    1/2 ounce lemon juice


    you can of course take less lemon juice if the drink is too acidic
