For The Black Tie Issue, the obvious choice of cocktail Friday had to include the strong, classic Black Russian cocktail. Drawing it’s origin from 1949, by a Belgium bartender, this one? it isn’t for the faint-hearted, and that’s why I love it.

I personally love and use Mr Black coffee liqueur over the traditional Kahlua or Tia Maria- it’s cold pressed and Australian made and owned, and I love its depth of flavour and the coffee kick it lends to this cocktail in particular.

It’s somewhat traditional to garnish the Black Russian with a maraschino cherry- for a modern modern take, I suggest lime, an unexpected, but a delciious twist.

Ingredients

  • 100ml vodka
  • 50ml coffee liqueur
  • Ice
  • Lime for garnish

Method

  1. In a short glass, stir together vodka and coffee liqueur
  2. Add plenty of ice
  3. Top with fresh lime
