Chocolate Cherry Russian Recipe
- 1 ounce chocolate milk
- 3 cherries, pitted and halved
- 1 ounce vodka
- ½ ounce Kahlúa
This cocktail takes the traditional White Russian in a new direction by freezing the mixer and garnish — in this recipe, chocolate milk with cherries — into an eye-catching ice cube. The more the cube melts, the better the cocktail gets. The Dude definitely abides.
Fill one compartment of an ice cube tray with the chocolate milk, leaving a little room at the top so there is no spill over when you add the cherries. This recipe was made using a 2x2-inch ice cube — if you have a large compartment tray I recommend you use it because the effect of the larger cube will be more impressive. Then add the cherry halves, arranging as desired for the best visual effect. Place in the freezer for at least an hour and a half.
Once the ice cube has frozen solid and you are ready to serve, combine the vodka and Kahlúa in a glass. Add the prepared ice cube, and enjoy.
