I always laugh to myself a bit when I realize how different our Friday nights look now versus three years ago. Instead of heading out to big dinners with our friends or staying out late at the bar, we take it easy and I love it. Typically we’ll go out to dinner at one of our favorite neighborhood spots, a few weeks back it was Tanta, and then come home and binge on our favorite Netflix shows or watch a movie over drinks.
Lately I’ve been trying my hand at making cocktails and this spiced white Russian has quickly become a new favorite! It’s perfect for the end of our night because it tastes a bit like dessert! Instead of sticking to a basic White Russian recipe, this one is made with Kahlúa®, Absolut vodka and infused heavy cream that adds a bit of a kick to the drink! I recommend making the infused cream earlier in the day and keeping it chilled until it’s time to serve.
You can visit Drizly and order liquor to be delivered straight to your door, which makes it even easier to have a night in! Check the bottom of this post for a free delivery code to purchase Kahlúa® and make this cocktail at home on your next Friday night in.
These cozy nights at home have easily become one of my favorite nights of the week to catch up with Rob. There’s no stress of work the next day and it’s so peaceful to be at home cuddled up on the couch. I mean, doesn’t that just sound amazing?!
Do you like to stay in or go out on Friday nights? Do you have a cocktail you love making at home too?
