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.
- 1 cup coffee ice cream softened
- 1 oz shot coffee liqueur 1 1/2
- 1 oz shot whipped cream-flavored vodka 1 1/2
- Whipped cream for garnish
- Grated semisweet chocolate or chocolate syrup, for garnish
Place the coffee ice cream, coffee liqueur, and flavored vodka in a blender. Blend on high speed for about 20 seconds, until well-combined but still thick.
Pour into a chilled glass, garnish with whipped cream and grated chocolate or chocolate syrup.
