H3 White Russian by Anthony Triceri

A White Russian is a classic American cocktail made famous in the 1940’s when vodka was largely distributed from Russia.  Classically, white Russians are served with equal parts vodka, Kahlua (coffee liquor) and heavy cream; but, here’s some Healthy Kitchen tips to save yourself almost 90 calories. Just swap in skim milk for the heavy cream then cut the Kahlua amount in half and replace with brewed coffee. Shake, serve and enjoy!
