Make an Eggnog White Russian cocktail by mixing eggnog, vodka, and Kahlua. It is a quick, easy, and festive holiday drink recipe! The only difference between this recipe and a classic White Russian is that you will use eggnog in place of the cream.

Why this recipe works:

This Russian Eggnog cocktail fits the bill when it comes to both easy and delicious.

Did you know… A White Russian isn’t actually a Russian drink, but got its name because its star boozy ingredient is vodka which everyone associates with Russia.

A typical white Russian is equal parts vodka, coffee liquor, and cream. For this recipe, all you have to do is swap the cream with eggnog and you have the easiest, most delicious, festive holiday cocktail! 

How to make a White Russian with eggnog:

  1. This drink is easy because you start with an old fashioned glass with ice.
  2. Then you just pour in the vodka, Kahlua, and eggnog. Easy!
  3. To mix it up, all one has to do is swirl it around in the glass.
