Drink of the Week: The Hyper Russian

SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

It’s cold. Real cold. Coffee season is in especially full swing. If you somehow manage to have some left in the pot, tepid, at the end of the day, don’t throw it out. Use it for other, fun things, like the Hyper Russian.

The magic: 1 shot vodka, any brand (you get what you pay for).

Stir the vodka and four ounces of cold-to-room-temperature coffee together in a clear glass.

(Gently) set in a few ice cubes and top with milk. Watch the clouds settle. Relax. Think about things.

Coffee and liquor together are nothing new, but in lieu of smashing a college budget buying Kahlua to make a standard White Russian, this drink manages to capture a similar, warm, coffee aroma.

Note: Please drink responsibly. Caffeine and booze is a potentially dangerous combination, one not to be explored in high quantities or before/during an 8:30 lecture.
