Nutty Russian. Don’t you just love the name!!! I came up with it and was so excited to share it with you. Then I found out that a Nutty Russian was an actual cocktail and I hadn’t invented something new 🙁

Oh well, it is still a cool name and I am still smiling that I thought of it. I don’t care if someone else did first! 😉

I used to be a bit obsessed with black russians and white russians. They were my drink of choice for quite some time. then I had a bit of a disastrous experience with a broken shoe and I reined myself in a bit!! Oh the joys of youth 😉 Now they are a bit more of an occasional drink that a Saturday night ritual! Shush I was young!!!! And probably pretty foolish (But I am not admitting to that one 😉 )

Anyway traditionally a black russian doesn’t have cola in it. But so many people add it, that it has become an accepted adaption. I find it helps make the drink last a bit longer which when it is heavy on the alcohol is probably a good think! Hic.

I have named brands in the recipe, because well they are the ingredients I used. But feel free to swap out the frangelico for a different nut liqueur. You could swap out the coffee liqueur too, personally (although I adore Tia Maria and coke) I don’t think it is as good in this as kahlúa, but it is still very drinkable and vey yummy.
