The Black Russian is a cocktail of vodka and coffee liqueur. It contains five parts vodka to two parts coffee liqueur, per IBA specified ingredients. Traditionally the drink is made by pouring the vodka over ice cubes or cracked ice in an old-fashioned glass, followed by the coffee liqueur. A White Russian has milk or cream added to it. Neither drink is Russian in origin, but both are so named due to vodka being the primary ingredient. Like the chicken and the egg, it is unclear which came first.
