Cocktail of the Week #50: White Russian

(To the tune of Jefferson Airplane's "White Rabbit")
Oh, Brezhnev liked his vodka
And Andropov, single malts
While Chernenko liked martinis
With a lemon twist really small
But at drinking games
Khrushchev could bury them all

Sorry. Couldn't help myself. [Smirk!]

It's funny, but I had always heard of White Russian cocktails growing up, but it seemed to me that a vodka drink containing a coffee liqueur such as Kahlua would be a Black Russian, but what do I know...

A lovely after dinner drink on a cool weekend evening. A bit heavy for the warmer weather we have been experiencing of late, however.
