The White Russian cocktail, an abiding classic drink, is made with vodka, Kahlúa, a coffee liqueur and cream, usually served in a rocks glass. At its finest, it’s a drink that doubles as dessert while not drowning you in syrupy sweetness. But it does pack a bit of a punch.

A variation of the Black Russian, the White Russian cocktail is made the same way but with the addition of the cream. Neither drink is actually of Russian origin but probably got their names because vodka is the primary spirit.
