Bailey’s Chocolate White Russian

How To Make a Bailey's Chocolate White Russian - The Kitchen Magpie

Ok, I know that this is the least summery drink right now, but honestly, does a White Russian ever go out of season?

I don’t think so. It’s not like I’m talking about hot cider here folks. I’m talking about a smooth, creamy, dreamy White Russian with a Bailey’s and chocolate twist!

First, you should know that chocolate vodka is a staple in my liquor cabinet. It goes into anything, adding just that little oomph taste-wise that you are looking for. While I wouldn’t suggest it in a Ceasar, most fruity or cream based drinks are made better with a little chocolate vodka!

Second, you should know that this tastes way too evil, has far too much booze in it and is deadly! (These are not bad things in my opinion, just so we are clear.)

I can’t remember the last time I had a White Russian before this one and I don’t know why. They are definitely not in vogue, with all the fancy little herb cocktails that abound lately, but dang, this is so good! Give me a solid oldie cocktail like this on instead of a lavender tea tree cocktail garnished with elderflower berries.  <– Sense my sarcasm?

So happy drinking everyone! I love how easy this drink is, you simply must add it to your cocktail repertoire!

Love you more than cocktails,

It’s time to bring the White Russian back with a modern update of chocolate vodka, Bailey’s and some whipped cream! This recipe is for one, so double/triple the recipe accordingly for your needs.


  • 1 shot chocolate vodka
  • 1 shot baileys
  • 2 shot half and half cream

whipped cream and chocolate


    1. Combine the first three ingredients into a shaker (or a jar) with half a cup of ice. Shake thoroughly and then pour into a martini glass, keeping the ice out of the drink. (strain with a sieve)
    2. Garnish with whipped cream, chocolate shaving and a cherry if wanted.
    3. Enjoy!
