A straight up classic and the perfect after-dinner cocktail. Some riffs on this drink include lengthening it with cola, but this recipe keeps it as it was intended: just vodka and coffee liqueur.
Pour the vodka and coffee liqueur into a rocks glass full of ice.
Give the drink a gentle little stir to combine the ingredients to your desired dilution.
Garnish with an orange slice or two if using.
Try stirring the drink down to your desired dilution in a mixing glass, then serving it over a block of ice instead of using cubes or crushed ice.
