When my book club PALS read A Gentleman in Moscow, our hostess Barbara prepared Borscht. I have never been a big fan of beets, but I was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed Borscht.
And of course, the perfect cocktail would be a White Russian.
2 ounces KAHLÚA
1 ounce Vodka
1 ounce Heavy Cream
Pour the Kahlua and Vodka into an ice filled old fashioned glass, and stir. Float cream on top.
For a festive garnish add a toasted marshmellow on a toothpick across the top of the glass.
