    I've been drinking this for years. It's simply the best, better if you use whipped vodka. Whole milk instead of cream.

    I like to mix this in 1 gallon milk jugs and just keep it in my fridge so it is allways ready to go! In winter I fill my glass up with snow and then pour in the white russian! Soooo Good!
