The Red Russian Cocktail

Bloody Undie 300x195 The Red Russian CocktailBy Matt Rodgers

3/4 oz Vodka

3/4 oz Kaluha

Balance with milk in a rocks glass

Drizzle Grenadine around the inside of the glass so the grenadine slowly runs the sides and then a few drops in the middle. 

The story behind the drink:  I was told I needed to create an original drink recipe for bartending school.  My wife Joy’s favorite drink is the white russian.  So I just used that and drizzled grenadine on top and called it a Red Russian.  Genius!

    The name was to offensive, do they not know there is a vodka drink called the red Russian? In WWII they made it with cows blood and vodka.

    no problem, bartending mag told me the name was too offensive. So i used the “bloody russian”. Red russian is good

    Typical Communist propaganda. Do we all have to share the damn drink equally too? Wait… I have an idea, you should call it the “Obama’s Pelosi” How’s that for offensive!!!!!!


  • Tizzle

    “skid mark”?!!!!!!!!!
