White Russian Cocktail. Head Bartender at London's Meet Bar, Gerry Calabrese, is going to show us how to make a White Russian. This is a smooth and creamy coffee-flavoured cocktail. Experience our White Russian Cocktail.

Step 1: You will need…

  • short glass
  • cocktail shaker
  • 25ml (1fl oz) bar measure

Step 2: Vodka

Put 50ml or 2fl oz of vodka into the mixing glass

Step 3: Coffee Liqueur

Then add 25ml or 1fl oz of coffee liqueur

Step 4: Cream

Now add 25ml or 1 fl oz of single cream

Step 5: Ice

Fill your serving glass and mixing glass with ice

Step 6: Shake

Put the top half of the shaker on, pressing down firmly to seal. Hold the top and bottom and shake vigorously over your shoulder for about 20 seconds.
When there is condensation on the outside of the shaker and it feels very cold, you know that the cocktail is thoroughly mixed.

Step 7: Release

Tap the shaker to loosen the two halves. Release the top by rocking it back and forth.

Step 8: Serve

Strain the cocktail over the ice, and serve.

Step 9: Variations

Experiment with the quantities to get your perfect mix. You could also try milk as an alternative to cream. Leaving out cream or milk altogether creates a Black Russian.
