Your new favorite drink [by Alicia]
OK, get out a pen, beverage connoisseurs, because Home Plate bartender “Peels” has your new favorite cocktail. It took a little cajoling and coaxing from me, but Peels finally gave up the recipe to this secret edition White Russian. I’m gonna call it … the Coked-Up Caucasian.
Everyone in the Eagle newsroom was buzzing about this drink last weekend, so I felt it was Buntology’s duty to test it out. I dragged some colleagues along to the Plate last night to fulfill that obligation.
This frothy drink tastes like a vanilla milkshake. Delicious. I tried not to envision how many calories one serving would have. Luckily, this cocktail is STRONG. I didn’t need more than one. I mean, did I have more than one? Yes. But it probably wasn’t necessary. Or prudent.
Try it at home or out with friends!
1 oz Vanilla Vodka
1 oz Bailey’s Irish Cream
1 oz Kahlua
Splash of Coca-Cola

“Shaken, not stirred,” advises Peels.
