The classic Black Russian Cocktail is rather stiff for me. Call me a lightweight cause that’s exactly what I am.

My sister is the Classic Black Russian fan in our family. She prefers the less sweet drinks. So now we can both enjoy a late afternoon coffee drink. I make these two drinks and we sip away.

Hi Wendy! Cold brew is coffee that is made with cold water and steeped for 12 hours. You can buy cold brew at the grocery store in the cold drink section. It has a stronger coffee flavor than regular brewed coffee.
