TheÂ Black RussianÂ is a vodkaÂ cocktail, traditionally due to its Russian roots, mixed withÂ coffee liqueur. It is a simple drink made by pouring the vodka overÂ ice cubesÂ or cracked ice in anÂ old-fashioned glass, followed by the coffee liqueur. This combination first appeared in 1949 and is ascribed to Gustave Tops, aÂ BelgianÂ barman, who created it at theÂ Hotel MetropoleÂ inÂ BrusselsÂ in honor ofÂ Perle Mesta, thenÂ United States Ambassador to Luxembourg.
Pour all the ingredients into an old fashioned glass over a single ice cube and stir. Garnish with cherries and enjoy!
