Aggravation Cocktail

I can’t help but wonder where the Aggravation Cocktail got its name. Maybe it helps you get past aggravation? Because it sure doesn’t cause any.

Aggravation Cocktail in rocks glass with ice

This drink features scotch with Kahlua and cream, making it something you could think of as an interesting variation on the White Russian. It’s definitely fair to think of this as a Kahlua drink, but it’s also a good cocktail for people who enjoy scotch.

You might think scotch and Kahlua would taste bad together, but the cream makes a big difference. Give this one a try the next time you’re in the mood for a White Russian.


  • 1 1/2 ounces scotch
  • 1/2 ounce Kahlua
  • 1/2 ounce heavy cream

Fill an old-fashioned glass with ice. Pour in the scotch and Kahlua. Float the cream on the top and serve with a straw for stirring.
