Holiday Russian

Holiday Russian via elisebakesNothing speaks to me during the holidays better than a comforting, creamy drink.  So I give you a festive way to ease your holiday stress – the Holiday Russian.  I’m betting there’s probably a name for a White Russian made with Eggnog, but I couldn’t really find anything other than ‘Eggnog Russian ‘ (okay, I didn’t look that hard) and that’s boring, so I’m dubbing it the Holiday Russian.Holiday Russian via elisebakes

  • 1 oz Caramel Vodka
  • 1 oz Kahlua
  • 2 oz Eggnog

Pour in a shaker with ice, shake, and pour in a small tumbler or rocks glass over ice.  Easy peasy!

Caramel Mudslide Cocktail

Mmm…Bailey’s.  Yep, I went out and bought a bottle of Bailey’s for a cup of hot chocolate the other night because it was soo cold out!  There are a million other delicious ways to drink Bailey’s too!  Two of my favorites are mudslides and blind russians.  A blind Russian is vodka, Kahlua, and Bailey’s, and a mudslide is the same plus cream.  I used caramel coffee creamer to add flavor…I must confess that I added a spoonful of salted caramel sauce as well.  I love caramel!

  • 1 oz vodka
  • 1 oz Kahlua
  • 1 oz Bailey’s
  • 2 oz Cream

Pour in a shaker with ice, shake, and pour in a small tumbler or rocks glass over ice.  It’s that easy.
