World's Blackest Black Russian
We're not usually the cocktail recipe creation types here at Liquor Snob. We're usually too busy drinking straight out of the bottle, or at best doing what we like to call "mouth mixing," where you mix your drink directly in your mouth without the added baggage of a glass. True, we did come up with the Orange-plosion, but while it's a great-tasting drink we fully admit we're not big on the name. But sometimes we're hit with a lightning bolt of an idea that strikes us as true genius. Our most recent is the World's Blackest Russian.
We were hit with the idea when we fell asleep cradling our bottle of Blavod vodka, and we realized you could make a mean black russian with it. We're sure we're not the first people to think of mixing Blavod with Kahlua, but here's where our stroke of genius came in. Kahlua is a coffee liqueur, right? Our idea for the World's Blackest Russian involved not only the deepest black color, but also the most intense coffee taste. So we cleaned out our ice trays, poured our leftover coffee from this morning's pot in there, and waited.
By now you can probably see the method to our madness, but we're going to spell it out anyway because we feel like geniuses. And so, we bring the world, the recipe for the World's Blackest Russian:
2 parts Blavod Black Vodka
1 part Coffee Liqueur
Coffee Ice Cubes
Mix the vodka and Kaluha together over coffee ice cubes. Drink. Repeat.
We're not kidding...it's black as night and tastes so much like coffee you might think about slipping it into your mug in the morning. Highly recommended. But maybe that's just because we invented it. Not that it's going to our heads...we totally have our wits about us even after extensive recipe testing. In fact, for a heady moment our next thought was to reinvent the white russian with a scoop of coffee ice cream, but we're going to leave that one alone because it already belongs to the Dude.
