Whether it be matching onesies on Christmas morning or watching “Christmas Vacation” on repeat, we’re suckers for holiday traditions.
Without a doubt, one of favorite traditions is the classic White Russian Cocktail. Nothing says “Happy Holidays” quite like a glass of this savory, oh-so-creamy concoction.
To bring a fresh take on this holiday mainstay, we’ve teamed up with tastemaker Wit & Delight. She’s sharing how to liven up this cocktail – swapping in rum and adding a splash of root beer, this beloved drink gets a whole new flavor.
See her recipe…
WHAT YOU'LL NEED
1-1.5 oz. Jamaican Rum
0.5 oz. Coffee Liqueur
Heavy splash of root beer
Heavier splash of heavy whipping cream
1 pinch of cinnamon or nutmeg
PREP YOUR GLASS
To start, fill your cocktail glass with ice.
ADD THE BASE
Pour your rum and coffee liqueur over the ice.
Finish with a splash of root beer and heavy whipping cream (yes, it better be heavy). Sprinkle with a bit of cinnamon or nutmeg on top.
And there you go! With that, let's raise a glass to family, tradition, and the things that truly matter this holiday season.
