So after Five Irish Golds, Four Blackbirds, Three French Martinis, Two Turtle Doves, and a Cranberry Pear Bellini, we’re back with the 6th day of Christmas Cocktails here at C&M! We’re halfway done! Today is another favorite right out of the Schiller’s Liquor Bar book! Now the sixth day of Christmas has “Six Geese A Laying.”

White Russian Egg Cream

Ingredients

2 oz. Stoli Vanil Vodka
1 oz. Kahlua
½ cup Whole Milk
Club Soda

Instructions
Pour the Stoli Vanil, Kahlua, and Milk into a Cocktail Shaker. Shake well for 10-15 seconds, then transfer to a chilled tall glass. Slowly add Club Soda to the glass, stirring the mixture gently as you pour. Getting the desired frothy texture works best with a soda gun, so for that soda fountain feel, an old fashioned spritzer bottle is the way to go. If you are simply pouring the soda out of a bottle, be sure to stir it well enough to create some froth.

Mmm… if I weren’t at work right now, I’d gladly be mixing up six of these bad boys and cueing up The Big Lebowski. Never fear though, as I do still have a #TakeOutTheater column coming up today with another movie that could creatively link into this drink. Stick around, as we’ll be back with that #TakeOutTheater pick as promised!
