I decided to dress up a classic White Russian for our afternoon of wreath making last week . I wanted something creamy and delicious with a fun twist to go with our Christmas music and merry making. After a few web searches and some experimenting I give you- The Christmas Waltz!
To make this festive twist on a classic you will need:
- A gram-cracker
- Chocolate syrup
- 2 oz Milk
- 2 oz Coffee Liquor
- 1 oz Vodka
Grab two small plates. Crush your gram-cracker into tiny crumbs on one of them and draw a ring with the chocolate syrup on the other. First dip the rim of your cocktail glass into the ring of chocolate syrup and then into the crushed gram crackers.
Place the desired number of marshmallows onto a small “tray” you fashion out of tin foil. Put those marshmallows into your toaster oven on high until they reach that perfect level of golden brown.
While you are keeping one eye on your toasting marshmallows fill your cocktail shaker with ice and pour in your coffee liquor and vodka. Shake vigorously getting the alcohol as cold as possible. Pour into your cocktail glass and top with milk.
Garnish with one perfectly toasted marshmallow straight out of the toaster. Put on your favorite Christmas album and enjoy!
I hope you find the time to enjoy many yummy cocktails surrounded by friends, family and all of your holiday favorites. Happy December, everyone!
