White Hot Russian Cocktail (GF/DF)

Hot White Russian

Most people who know me would think that this refers to a hockey player but it actually refers to another love in my life… cocktails!

We were invited to a winter bonfire at my neighbor’s house and I thought hot chocolate would be really nice… and why not add a kick?

This is also perfect to sip by a roaring fire! Enjoy!
