A white russian is a popular drink across the world. However, the single best one I’ve ever had was at a Couchsurfer’s house in Lviv, Ukraine. The classic cocktail consists of heavy amounts (by Western standards) of vodka, coffee liqueur, and cream served over ice. Originally called a Black Russian, the name changed after the delicious addition of cream. When in Eastern Europe and Russia, you definitely don’t want to miss out!
