ST. PATRICK’S DAY: White Irishman, A White Russian Variation

From the R Lounge at the Renaissance Times Square hotel, this cocktail recipe is an adaptation of the White Russian. Call it a White Irishman, if you prefer.

A White Russian combines 2 parts vodka with 1 part coffee liqueur and light cream (a Black Russian omits the cream).

Here, Irish whiskey takes the place of the vodka, and chocolate shavings turn the cocktail into an after-dinner drink/liquid dessert.



  • 1-1/2 oz / 45 ml Jameson Irish Whiskey
  • 1-1/2 oz / 45 ml Kahlua
  • 2 oz / 60 ml half & half or light cream
  • Dark chocolate shavings
  • Ice

    1. Combine first three ingredients in a cocktail shaker. Shake and pour over ice.

    2. Garnish with dark chocolate shavings and serve.
