History of the Tiramisu White Russian
The White Russian and Tiramisu riff are both classics that share a rich coffee flavor, so a meeting of these two titans was inevitable. We’re not sure who first mixed this cocktail, but whoever you are, you have our thanks. The Tiramisu White Russian is the best of both worlds, with rich flavors and a luxurious texture. It’s an Italian dessert in a glass and a must-try for Tiramisu fans.
The Tiramisu White Russian recipe is delicious, but if you want a lighter version, try the original White Russian. If you want an even lighter version, go for the lean and mean Black Russian.
