The White Russian is basically the Black Russian with cream, but there are a couple of variations on it. While a Black Russian always uses coffee liqueur, and the White Russian traditionally does too, the White can also use dark Creme de Cacao for a more chocolatey flavor.
This classic cocktail’s popularity is well-established. Not everyone loves it – those who object to creamy drinks or sweet liqueurs generally dislike this one. But it definitely has more fans than detractors.
