Sugar-Free White Russian Cocktail

White Russians are cocktails of three ingredients: vodka, Kahlua or other coffee liqueur, and cream. From a sugar perspective, the only real problem is the coffee liqueur. A jigger (1.5 oz) of a coffee liqueur can contain almost as much sugar as an 8 oz glass of a cola drink! The good news is that Da Vinci's Sugar-Free Kahlua-flavored syrup tastes quite similar to the real thing (see below for sources).
Note: A Black Russian cocktail is simply a White Russian without the cream.

How to Make Sugar-Free White Russian Cocktail

Step-by-Step

  1. Ingredients:
    •1 jigger (1.5 oz or 3 tablespoons) vodka (nutritional analysis uses 80 proof)
    •1 jigger heavy cream (or see proportion variations below)
    •1 jigger Da Vinci's Sugar-Free Kahlua-Flavored Syrup (sources below)

    Preparation:

    There are two main variations in the amounts of the main ingredients of a White Russian. The first has two parts vodka to one part each of the other two ingredients. The other has equal parts of all three. I prefer the latter, so that is the one I am presenting. If I want a cocktail that is less rich, I will substitute water for half of the cream. This would reduce the carbohydrate to half a gram and the calories to 174.

    To make your White Russian, simple put the ingredients in a glass, stir, and add ice.
