Four ingredients combine to make a delicious and decadent warm drink. Equally great for aprés ski, as a reward post-shovelling, or for a quiet cottage weekend—sip it by the fire or enjoy it outside on the deck. Falling snow is optional, but highly encouraged. 

White Hot Russian

3 oz hot coffee
1 oz vodka
¾ oz Kahlúa
2 oz whipped cream

In a glass coffee mug, mix the first three ingredients together, then carefully spoon on the whipped cream.
