Recipe: White Indian – SomruS’ White Russian Cocktail

The White Russian is a classic cocktail, and our resident mixologist and man-about-town Benjamin Newby tackled it recently with this recipe. But recipes are a lot like directions, and there are many different ways to arrive at the same delicious destination. If you’re looking for a quicker, easier route, we’ve got a shortcut for you to try. By all means, we recommend both paths, but occasionally the best possible route isn’t between two points—it involves three ingredients.


  • 2oz SomruS
  • 1.25oz vanilla vodka
  • 1oz Espresso


Combine all ingredients with a 2×2 inch cube or sphere in an old fashioned glass. Stir with a bar spoon.
