Dirty Black Russian, Alcohol, Cocktail, Smirnoff, Vodka, Kahlua, Coffee, Cola, Diet CokeIf I’m honest, I’m not a great fan of very creamy (read: containing milk or eggs) cocktails unless it’s a Pisco Sour. Which is why when I’m offered a choice of the “Russian” cocktails, I always go for the Black Russian. A blend of coffee liqueur and vodka they are mighty cocktail to take on, but worth every mouthful.

I like to step it up a gear by using a highball glass and topping up with Cola and make it a Dirty Black Russian. Effectively a glorified vodka and coke (beverage of choice for me), this is a simple cocktail that is an instant winner.

You will need:

  • Highball glass
  • Ice


  • 50ml vodka
  • 20ml Kahlua (or any coffee liqueur)
  • Cola

How to make it:

In the highball, add the vodka and Kahlua and stir (if you want to use a cocktail shaker to mix, do). Top up the glass with Cola and serve. If you’re not a great fan of coffee, put less Kahlua in, and make sure you have the full-fat Cola.

This is a sharp drink that fizzes all the way to the toes – forget Red Bull, with the amount of caffeine in one of these, you’ll be wide awake for hours!
