China White

China White cocktail with vodka, Irish cream, and creme de cacao

Traditionally, the China White is a served as a layered shooter. We’re honestly not fans of it that way – Irish cream isn’t particularly attractive floated over clear vodka, and it’s typically pretty warm unless you happen to keep both of those spirits in the freezer.

We prefer to shake all the ingredients with ice first, so that they’re fully chilled. The aeration from the shaking also helps to soften the nearly-too-sweet flavor of the drink.

You can use light or dark crème de cacao in this, although “China Brown” doesn’t really have the same ring to it.

Instructions

Shake with ice and strain into shot glasses. We like to keep a few shotglasses in the freezer for shots like this one!

Get the App

The Cocktail Party app puts this drink – and hundreds more – in your pocket, and tells you what you can make from the ingredients you have at home. It's the best $3.99 you'll ever spend on a drink.

An awesome cocktail app with curated recipes

I'm shocked that there are no reviews listed for this app. I found it on reddit's cocktails forum. The drink list in this app is much shorter than in many of the other apps I've seen, but the quality and reliability of the recipes is much much higher. These are more like the drinks you would get at a good mixology bar instead of the drink equivalent of your aunt's jello fruit mold that people just "love." I much prefer a list of cocktails that are reliable, good and repeatable than a huge pile of garbage recipes. This app is great and delivers great, reliable cocktails.
