Short & Sweet Sunday - Dark & Spicy Black Russian

Ready for a super tasty cocktail recipe?  I started "inventing" this cocktail last time we were in Las Vegas.  I ordered a Black Russian and then noticed Cinnamon Spice Kahlua behind the bar.  

So I asked for a cinnamon Black Russian and loved it.
When we got back to Canada I looked for it at the liquor store but they said they'd never heard of it.  Then this Christmas season I noticed Cinnamon Spice Kahlua in the LCBO and I snapped it up.

Another new product I'm addicted to is this dark chocolate milk.  It is so wonderfully rich and delicious.  I make mochas with it all the time.  I figured I could make a "white" Russian with this that would be pretty tasty.

So, this is basically a standard White Russian with 2 oz Vodka, 1 oz Cinnamon Spice Kahlua and 3 oz dark chocolate milk.  

I always pour the Kahlua in first, although I think you're supposed to pour the vodka first.  Pour the Kahlua over ice, then add the vodka.

Top with the dark chocolate milk.

I like my Black Russian with a maraschino cherry, and it would be worth a try in this too, but I didn't have any on hand and it's great as is.
