This vintage cocktail never goes out of style and is a crowd pleaser.



1-1/2 ounces Kahlua coffee liqueur 

1-1/2 ounces vodka

1-1/2 ounces heavy whipping cream


  1. Fill a rocks glass with fresh ice cubes.
  2. Pour in equal amounts of ingredients.
  3. Give a slight stir to mix just a little.


Some people prefer to layer the ingredients rather than mix them.  For this method, add ingredients in the following order: first the vodka, then the coffee liqueur, then pour the heavy whipping cream on top.
