Caramel White Russian Cocktail Recipe – classic white Russian cocktail with tons of caramel vodka and Kahlua flavor! Perfect cozy Christmas White Russian recipe.

If you loove the rich, creamy, delicious flavors of White Russian cocktails, you’ll love this delicious easy twist on the classic – that is perfect for Christmas!

These White Russians pack a ton of salted caramel flavor, without much work, thanks to the addition of caramel Kahlua and caramel vodka.

You can make these White Russians extra creamy by using heavy cream, or a little lighter using half and half.

A sprinkle of fresh nutmeg over the top takes this cocktail over the top with flavor – I hope you love this easy drink as much as we do!

What is a White Russian

Outside of being one of the main characters of one of my favorite cult movies – White Russian Cocktails are insanely delicious, creamy, almost dessert like drinks.

They are milky – but not thick – and taste almost like a cookies and creme milkshake.

White Russians are perfect to sip for dessert or at a party!

Much like Moscow Mules, White Russians didn’t originate anywhere near Russia – they are from a cocktail bar in Los Angeles! Since they include vodka, they took on their Russian moniker – and have taken over ever since!

Recipe FAQs

Can I make dairy free White Russian?

If you need a reliable non-dairy alternative to cream, use coconut milk at a 1:1 ratio. Bailey’s has a delicious almond milk version you can use, too!

Can I use milk in a White Russian?

If you don’t have cream you can use milk or half and half – but not low-fat milk or milk substitute – or the drink will curdle.
