My Favorite Christmas Drink.

Obviously my favorite drink in general is wine…preferably red. BUT I have decided to venture out, broaden my horizons, and try something new. In my taste tests and mixology experiments at home with my boyfriend and I, we have come across the perfect Christmas Eve/Christmas Day cocktail to have with friends and family.

The White Russian. It’s simple, classy, creamy, and sweet. Here’s what you need:

  • 1 part Vodka (your choice, I used Tito’s)
  • 1 part Kahlua
  • 1 part milk (I used 2 percent)
  • ice cubes
  • cinnamon

Add ice cubes to a glass, pour Kahlua and Vodka over the ice. Add the milk, and give it a good stir. Then, I like to sprinkle some cinnamon on top for garnish and a little extra flavor. Add more Kahlua as you see fit-if you like it on the sweet side.

This is the PERFECT drink to sit by the fire, around the Christmas tree, and just relax- and it is SO simple to make!

*Note: the recipe did call for light cream, but milk works just as well and it cuts the calories! 🙂
