Hello Everyone, we hope that you are keeping well and safe and staying at home during this month of September, that will probably extend into the next few months. At least now, we can get out for unlimited exercise and meet up to six people outside which is good news, social distancing of course!

We thought we would show you how to make another cocktail, called the White Russian Cocktail. The origin/history of the White Russian cocktail is that the general consensus is the drink originated in Russia. However, it has nothing to do with Russia, only that the Vodka that goes in the drink! It can be traced back to 1949 when Gustave Tops, a Belgian barman, created this cocktail along with the Black Russian, using cola as the mixer. At the hotel Metrople in Brussels, Belgium.

 

How to make the above cocktail, you will need the following ingredients/equipment.

This is a fairly straight forward cocktail to make but also very easy to drink too.

To make this cocktail, you will need to follow these simple steps.

Kick yourself back, relax and enjoy!

Just out of curiosity, what is your favourite cocktail at this time of year? Message us please and let us know, thank you.
