Black Russian
is a
of vodka and
coffee liqueur
(usually three parts vodka to two parts
coffee liqueur, per the
bottle's label, or five parts vodka to two parts coffee liqueur, per
specified ingredients) and sometimes mixed with Cola. When topped with Cola, it is referred to as a
Dirty Black Russian, as opposed to Clean when without it. 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.
This combination first appeared in 1949, and is ascribed to Gustave Tops, a
Belgian barman
, who
created it at the
Hotel Metropole
in honor of
Perle Mesta
, then
U.S. ambassador
The cocktail owes its name to the use of vodka, a stereotypical Russian spirit, and
the blackness of the coffee liqueur.
