Cocktail Recipe: Frozen Black Russian, 5.0 out of 5 based on 3 ratings Did you know this? The original Black Russian cocktail was invented in 1949 in Brussels by bartender Gustave Tops in honor of then-US Ambassador Perle Mesta.

If you’re a big coffee drinker, then the Black Russian is right up your alley. A combination of Kahlua or any coffee liqueur and vodka, this cocktail has long been a staple of many bar lists. The smooth and cool Black Russian takes on a different form for the summer in this recipe for a Frozen Black Russian, which adds a touch of decadence in the addition of a scoop of ice cream to the original mix.

If you’re looking for the traditional Black Russian cocktail, simply omit the ice cream. Pour the vodka over ice in a glass, followed by Kahlua or coffee liqueur, then stir gently. Place a maraschino cherry in and drink up!
