Many require elaborate preparations, but I when I looked at them I thought “what a great excuse to enjoy a lovely little Kahlua and Cream (or milk)”, one of my all time favorites.
It’s hard to improve on this simple little concoction, which is made with a shot of Kahlua (or other coffee liqueur) and milk, cream or half and half to taste. You could splash in a shot of vodka, for a little added effect — this drink is called a White Russian.
With a little advance prep you can make this beloved beverage red carpet ready (and bloody beautiful). At least an hour or so before you are ready to serve, temper a few ounces of white chocolate (click on temper to find out how).
Pour red sprinkles in a dish.
Dip the rim of the glasses in white chocolate, and then in the sprinkles. Allow the chocolate to cool and harden.

How fun! This makes me want to have a party. Emily, every time I need a little motivation to entertain, all I have to do is look around in your blog! Our weather here in Birmingham has been amazingly warm (in the 70's for days). Makes me want to have a cook out and use some of your tricks! M.
For me this would be perfect for dessert!!
Loving it, Emily. I am familiar with both White and Black Russians but not a Black Swan. Enjoy the big event! J x
