White Russian

Here’s one more Halloween cocktail for ya. We used one of Joanne’s favorite ingredients – Bailey’s Irish Cream and mixed that with vodka and half and half. Everything gets topped off with a sprinkle of nutmeg and you are ready to go.

    I seem to rarely drink anything with vodka because I have trouble getting past the alcohol’s wallop. But Baileys (and nutmeg) might just do the trick

      Bailey’s will definitely help — plus, if you really don’t want the vodka, you could just skip it in the recipe – the drink will still be delicious.
