A Black Russian, mixed and ready to drink.

Drink Ingredients:

  • 1/3 Kahlua (or Tia Maria)
  • 1 house vodka

Mixing Method: Build

  1. Build in a chilled rock glass.
  2. Scoop the glass 3/4 full with ice.
  3. Pour the ingredients over the ice.
  4. Serve with a straw, or swizzle stick.

Mixology Notes:

Kahlua is a complex balance of coffee, caramel and vanilla flavors. Tia Maria is strong, sweet, black coffee flavor. So if substituting Tia Maria for Kahlua, it’s still a pleasant drink, but it won’t have the same complexity, or depth of flavor.
