Black Russian

Black Russian cocktail with vodka and coffee liqueur

Before Lebowski, there was Perle Mesta – Ambassador Mesta, that is. In 1949, a Belgian barman whipped this up in honor of the visiting US ambassador to Luxembourg, cementing coffee liqueur’s place among the pantheon of “liqueurs you can put in vodka.” If you have one the zillions of flavors of regrettable dessert flavors available these days, try a half-and-half blend of regular vodka with the flavored vodka, and make up your own goofy “Something-or-other Russian” name for it.

clean, straightforward app

This is a clean, straightforward app that allows you quick access to find drinks to make based on ingredients that you have. I love it because the UI is intuitive and the drink selections are organized into subcategories. If you're looking to make your parties better or just learn how to make a new aperitif/nightcap, this app is for you.
