I was introduced to Dirty Birds in college. It would be several years before I learned that it is basically a White Russian.
Whatever. A rose by any other name, etc. etc. 😉
I rarely drink cocktails nowadays, but once in a while, at the end of a long week, I enjoy a Dirty Bird for dessert. 😉 It’s quick and easy.
Pour in glass over ice:
1 oz Kahlua (or other coffee liqueur)
1 oz vodka
Stir vigorously, sip slowly, enjoy!
If you have a cocktail shaker, use that and give it some good shakes before pouring into the drinking glass. If you order this at a bar or restaurant, it usually comes in an old-fashioned glass. I don’t think it matters.
Nowadays I use skim milk instead of regular milk (or cream) because the cocktail is enough of a splurge without all the added fat ;-D
