Vodka • Sweet
White Russian Cocktail Cubes

The Dude would approve. These frozen cubes, layered with coffee liqueur-spiked coffee and whole milk, make already easy White Russians (or Caucasians, as he would say) even easier. Freeze up a trayful, then pop a cube into a glass, and top with vodka whenever you want that sweet fix. Swirl and drink right away for an ultra-strong drink, or wait until the cube melts completely before taking a sip. Feel free to add two cubes for even more of a creamy-coffee punch. Note: Don’t be afraid of the less-than-beautiful look the milk takes on as it melts. The drink will still taste great.
