I wanted to share with you tonight, a sneak peak of my home bar. Here is a snippet of what I’m working with:
There will be more on this in the coming weeks, but for now I’d like to draw your attention front and center.
I love the Tito’s. I put down a lot of it over the summer, primarily in the form of Vermonters. Tito’s is just flat out good vodka that is made in Texas and distilled six times and a bunch of other stuff I don’t quite understand.
Quick sidebar – A Vermonter is what I’ve loving named a Vodka Tonic, which abbreviates to “VT” which is the abbreviation for Vermont. You know what they say…in the depths of a mind insane.
The White Russian is a true hall of fame cocktail. Like the Tito’s bottle, it’s simple with neutral colors. And coffee. Well…coffee liqueur, but you get the idea.
I don’t really want to jibber jabber too much on this one because I decided to mess around with some video and it will likely take me all night to get this post on the Internet.
So here’s how to make a White Russian. Or “Caucasian” if you are The Dude.
- 2 oz Vodka (Tito’s here)
- 1 oz Kahlua
- 1 oz Cream (Half and Half, Milk, whatever)
Disclaimer: I have no idea what I’m doing but when the cream hits the booze it looks pretty cool!
Anyway, this is an awesomely fun cocktail to prepare and drink. It’s a little boozy but sweet and delicious just the same.
If you are feeling saucy, try this guy’s big brother the Black Russian. It’s got a lot of vodka in it.
Big props to my production assistant (and wife), Joan. She can hit record like no other.
