First, this Kahlua Whipped Cream is amazing and so simple to make. Then we put it on top of an adult Russian Coffee drink. Warm, sweet, and a beautiful treat.

The White Russian Cocktail is a classic cold drink, but is begging to be made a hot cocktail. It has coffee in it, for Pete’s sake! Every morning I drink coffee and I never have it cold.

So, making a warm White Russian is what we are going to do today as part our White Russian Series, but WAIT! There is more. We are going to make an absolutely delicious and tasty Kahlua whipped cream that tops this cocktail off. It is so good.

Get your coffee mugs ready and enjoy our departure from a classic White Russian cocktail recipe. The White Russian Coffee with Kahlua Whipped Cream is delicious and totally worth a try.

Russian Coffee

You have heard of Irish Coffee? That is the one where you take a normal cup of joe and add whiskey to it. Well, Russian Coffee is a thing, as well. Instead of whiskey, we add vodka to the mix. This is not rocket science here.

Kahlua Whipped Cream

This delicious Kahlua whipped cream is what turns our alcoholic coffee into a special drink. We are going to make our own whipped cream with a twist. We are going to add Kahlua to it and it turns out really well.

You will get that awesome, fluffy, sweet flavor you expect from your average whipped cream, but then you add some boozy Kahlua flavor to the mix. The texture really stays the same as normal whipped cream, but has some extra flavor and booze.

My whipped cream recipe is really a take on Alton Brown’s, but the Kahlua is absolutely mine. I just experimented with that until it hit the consistency I needed.

How Long Can I Store Kahlua Whipped Cream

The recipe outlined in this recipe is definitely more than you will need for a single drink. You may have four guests, as outlined by the recipe, but perhaps not. You can store this whipped cream for a few days at most. I found that the alcohol does separate from the whipped cream as time goes on. A simple extra whipping should take care of it, but use the stuff up.

I feel that this recipe really brings all the flavors of a White Russian to a hot drink in an interesting way. I really hope you enjoyed this simple, but tasty, cocktail. Don’t forget to sign up to get updates via email and make sure to follow me on Instagram & Pinterest!
