The Black Russian is a simple vodka and coffee liqueur drink. This popular lowball is known throughout the world and is so popular that it (and the White Russian) should be one of the first that every aspiring bartender should memorize. Experiment beyond the common coffee liqueurs like Kahlua to create different tastes. One like the creamier Cafe Boheme paired with 42 Below's Manuka Honey vodka is a great match for a nightcap or an after dinner drink.
Serve it in a old fashioned glass.
