China White | Cocktail Party

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.

Ingredients

Instructions

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

Cocktail Party app on tablets and phones

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.

Really Good App

We downloaded the app after seeing it as one of the top posts on /r/cocktails, and we've been playing around with it and adding our ingredients to the list. While it's not an all inclusive list of ingredients (missing some creme de ), it's a solid overall app and tosses out some truly spectacular recipes based on what you have in your liquor cabinet. Minor quibbles for an otherwise fantastic application!
