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.

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.

This app ROCKS!!!

I've used a number of mix drink apps, and this one is by FAR the BEST! I've made a couple dozen drinks so far, and they're delicious. It suits my quality wants while (more importantly) suiting my inherent laziness. You put in what you have on hand, and it automatically lists all the drinks you can make! There's info on all the ingredients, which is pretty neat to learn some backstory. What I truly like is I can click an ingredient and it shows how many more drinks I can make. It's pretty fun picking up a new item and seeing 8 new drinks to try. There's a setting on the iPad that locks the app on so people can switch on the mixing app without letting anyone out of it, so I leave it by the bar and people can use it without worry of people snooping around. ;) The combination of all the drinks and this app that makes searching for, and making a drink, easy peezy lemon squeezey, and gives a real feeling of sophistication.
