Opal from Birmingham, AL (pop. 212,237) says:”

White Russians are cocktails of three ingredients: vodka, Kahlua or other coffee liqueur, and cream. From a sugar perspective, the only real problem is the coffee liqueur. A jigger (1.5 oz) of a coffee liqueur can contain almost as much sugar as an 8 oz glass of a cola drink! The good news is that Da Vinci’s Sugar-Free Kahlua-flavored syrup tastes quite similar to the real thing (see below for sources). Note: A Black Russian cocktail is simply a White Russian without the cream.

INGREDIENTS

– sugar-free white russian cocktail

DIRECTIONS
1. Ingredients:
•1 jigger (1.5 oz or 3 tablespoons) vodka (nutritional analysis uses 80 proof)
•1 jigger heavy cream (or see proportion variations below)
•1 jigger Da Vinci’s Sugar-Free Kahlua-Flavored Syrup (sources below)

Preparation:
There are two main variations in the amounts of the main ingredients of a White Russian. The first has two parts vodka to one part each of the other two ingredients. The other has equal parts of all three. I prefer the latter, so that is the one I am presenting.

If I want a cocktail that is less rich, I will substitute water for half of the cream. This would reduce the carbohydrate to half a gram and the calories to 174. To make your White Russian, simple put the ingredients in a glass, stir, and add ice.

First of all, I love to cook...not every night, but weekends are the best time to cook. I am a animal lover, especially wildlife. My next vacation would be to South Africa. To get personal and close up to wildlife would be fascinating. I like to read suspense, thriller novels. Regarding television....I like some reality shows, crime shows, comedies. I like to look at a recipe from a cookbook and do my version of it.. usually the healthier choice. I am all about substitutions, if a recipe calls for a ingredient there are dozens of ingredients you can substitute for the called-for ingredient. I like summer because I love cooking outdoors, swimming. It's just the fresh air that makes everyone want to get outside and do something. I love the air especially after the rain.... that nothing compares to that.
