The holidaze are here!! With the days whippin’ by oh-so-fast, us adults need a lil’ sumthin’ sumthin’ rich and indulgent with enough kick to keep us hustlin’. ‘Cause #selfcare.
Therefore, I cordially introduce you to the Dirty White Russian; the most delightful, cranberry coffee cocktail I may have ever imbibed. Plus, it doesn’t hurt at how adorable they look in my thrifted yellow glassware. Giving me allll the 😍.
Fun fact: this was my first White Russian ever. Since my perfect cup of coffee is akin caffeinated milk, I always knew we’d be friends. And dang Rudolph, it was good. Real good.
With only four ingredients, this Christmas cocktail comes together right quick at the end of a long day or in a pinch for that holiday party you’re planning.
In your favorite lowball glasses (or heck, use vintage ice cream cups like me), combine all ingredients in the proper order and let your guests give them a good stir. You’re bound to capture the true essence of the holiday spirit with all of this bright red and green! 🎄
