Holidays. Fall and winter camping. Tailgating. Tis the season! Tis also the season when we all like to get bundled up in scarves, mittens, and boots to stay warm. And maybe (just maybe) you’d also like a nice warm-you-from-the-inside-out cocktail? How does a Hot White Russian Cocktail sound? (Trust me… it sounds really good! Especially if you like rich coffee laced with a wee bit of vodka and Kahlua and topped off with a splash of comforting warm cream. Yes, it’s good!)
But with everything going on in everyone’s lives during this most hectic time of the year, it’s easy to forget things. (Like that time we zipped up to the cabin for a quick mid-holiday getaway… I had planned to make my homemade mac and cheese that first night. Well, I got up there, unpacked the groceries, and guess what I forgot?? The macaroni! Doesn’t make for a very good mac and cheese.) But it happens (it seems to happen a lot more often these days… hmmmm… Not good.)
I’ve also forgotten wine or whiskey on occasion (that’s really bad!) Here’s a tip… whether you’re planning a holiday get together, a cool weather camping trip, or a tailgating event – Don’t. Forget. The. Booze. (especially if you’re making this awesome Hot White Russian Cocktail!) So what do you do if your guests are arriving in an hour, or you’re in the final packing stages for your camping trip and you suddenly realize you forgot the beer, wine, or liquor? Do you panic? Nope! Not anymore. You go online, go to Drizly.com to order whatever alcohol you want and it will be delivered in about an hour! No kidding! What an amazing idea!

How to Make Your Hot White Russian Cocktail
So now that you’ve got your booze, let’s get on to the task at hand – making that awesome Hot White Russian Cocktail. This is a fantastic cool-weather-busy-time-of-year drink – it’s warm and rich with a kick of caffeine, and just enough fun stuff to take the edge off. Nice…! The best part is that it only uses four ingredients, and you probably have most of them on hand. Just make yourself a cup of coffee, toss in a shot of Kahlua and a half shot of Vodka. Drizzle in some warm cream, give it a stir, and sit back and relax.
This hand warming, heart warming cocktail goes well with whatever you may be doing during this festive, fun, busy, romantic time of year. So share one with your friends, family, and loved ones. Enjoy the moment! (And enjoy that you didn’t even need to run out into the cold to get your liquor! Thanks again Drizly for such a great service.
