Black Russian

The Black Russian is a classic and sophisticated cocktail known for its simple yet bold flavor profile. It consists of only two ingredients: vodka and coffee liqueur, typically Kahlúa. The drink is characterized by its deep, almost black color, which gives it its name.

It’s known for its no-fuss preparation and its robust, indulgent flavor, making it a staple in bars worldwide. The drink’s elegance lies in its simplicity, allowing the quality of the ingredients to shine through.
