This keto white Russian cocktails has all the creamy flavors of a classic White Russian cocktail without the guilt of sugar and carbs. By replacing traditional ingredients with low-carb alternatives you can still enjoy your favorite cocktail.
This is a great drink for the holidays or any celebrations. I always think that the flavor combination is similar to Irish cream too.
What is a White Russian
The White Russian is known for its rich and creamy taste, with the coffee liqueur adding a touch of sweetness and coffee flavor to the mix. It's a classic cocktail that's perfect for those who enjoy a creamy and slightly sweet drink with a hint of coffee and vodka.
The White Russian gained significant notoriety when it was featured in the 1998 cult classic film "The Big Lebowski," where the film's main character, "The Dude," played by Jeff Bridges, is a fan of the cocktail. This popularized the drink and contributed to its enduring popularity in cocktail culture.
White Russian Calories
The number of calories in a White Russian can vary depending on the specific brands of ingredients used and the serving size. The total calories in a standard White Russian is approximately 540 calories. A low carb version is around 270 calories mainly due to the sugar free Kahlua used.
Low Carb Coffee Liqueur
A coffee liqueur can be full of sugar but making your own low carb coffee liqueur is simple. Our keto kahlua is a must for this recipe as it's low in carbs and calories but a great coffee liqueur.
All you need is 3 ingredients for a keto white Russian drink. The key to making this low carb is using our keto Kahlua recipe to reduce the sugar content.
How to make a keto white Russian
Making a keto white Russian is easy and quick. Fill a glass with ice, then pour the vodka and add the Kahlua over it. Pour cream on top and you are ready to sip!
White Russian Variations
Rather than float the cream at the top of the drink, use a stirrer or a long spoon to gently mix the ingredients together. Stir until the cocktail is well combined, and it should take on a creamy, caramel-like color.
Swap the vodka with whiskey for a brown Russian for a richer, more complex flavor profile due to the whiskey.
Add a splash of pumpkin spice syrup or liqueur to your White Russian for a seasonal twist. It's perfect for fall and Thanksgiving.
Substitute coconut cream or coconut milk for the heavy cream to give your White Russian a tropical flavor.
