This Blackberry Russian Will Thrill Any Lebowski, Dude

As any Kahlúa fan or bearded bowling aficionado knows, White Russians are most definitely an American classic (take that, Putin!). But sometimes a little change is just as healthy as a visit to a good, thorough doctor, which is why you should check out this Blackberry Russian recipe from DrinksMadeEasy. It's a fruit-forward take on the more familiar coffee version, and it'll make you quite the little cocktail achiever. 

Blackberry Russian

Yield: 1 cocktail

  • 4 fresh blackberries
  • 2 ounces heavy cream
  • 1½ ounces Chambord
  • 1½ ounces vodka
  • Muddle the blackberries in an empty cocktail glass. 
  • Add ice, Chambord, and vodka. Stir well until combined, and then add the cream to create a layering effect if desired, or stir. Serve.
