Here’s how to make a Black Russian! This coffee-flavored vodka cocktail is perfect for after dinner drinks or an afternoon pick-me-up.


  • 2 ounces (4 tablespoons) vodka
  • 1 ounce (2 tablespoons) Kahlua*
  • Ice, for serving (try clear ice)
  • For the garnish: cocktail cherry (optional)


  1. Add the vodka and Kahlua to a mixing glass and fill with it ice. Stir until cold.
  2. Strain the drink into an ice filled lowball glass. Garnish with a cocktail cherry.
