The Black Russian is another of those cocktails that leave you gasping for their simplicity: take a glass, fill it with ice and pour vodka and coffee liqueur.

That’s all, but the magic of the Black Russian is still alive and kicking even at the venerable age of 100 years. And the reason is straightforward: once again, vodka is the silent but rocky sidekick, in this case, for an aromatic ingredient like coffee, which contains an endless array of scents.

You can drink Black Russian as an energizing after dinner, but also as an aperitif, but beware of its high alcohol content, so do not take it lightly.

Black Russian history

It dates back to 1949, and it’s a creation of the Belgian barman Gustave Topsè, who prepared it for the first time in honor of the then US ambassador during a gala dinner.

The name does not need any explanations: black for coffee and Russian because it uses the famous Russian-born spirit. But no more talk, and let’s go to the original Black Russian recipe.
