The Recipe

I’m a big fan of cocktails that involve chocolate, coffee, and/or whipped cream. The White Russian can, depending on the recipe, contain all three. What can make those cocktails even better? Making them into boozy milkshakes!

The White Russian reminds me of the Snowpocalypse of 2010. We got over three feet of snow in one day. We stocked up on food and alcohol, and prepared ourselves to be stuck in the house for several days. Since we couldn’t go anywhere, what was the harm in having cocktails at 1 in the afternoon? We watched bad television, had our cocktails, and had a fun afternoon!

These milkshakes are a great summertime version of that cocktail. If you like yours extra slushy, add a cup of ice to the blender.
