Tiramisu White Russians

Posted on

Imagine a drink that’s both a cocktail and dessert in one. This Italian-inspired White Russian is irresistible. While whipping your cream in a mason jar might feel like a mini workout, the cleanup is a breeze, and the delicious outcome is totally worth it. If you’re not up for the hand-whipping challenge, you can always use store-bought whipped topping instead!

Want to add a festive touch? A dash of orange bitters, a sprinkle of ground cinnamon, or some fresh nutmeg shavings can take this indulgent drink to the next level.

Tiramisu White Russians

Prep Time 5 minutes
Total Time 10 minutes
Course Dessert
Servings 2


  • 4 ounces cold heavy cream
  • 2 teaspoons granulated sugar
  • Ice
  • 4 ounces Kahlua divided
  • 4 ounces dark rum divided
  • Cocoa powder for garnish
  • 1 Ladyfinger cookie halved crosswise, for garnish


  • In a pint-sized glass jar, combine the cream and sugar. Seal the jar and shake vigorously until the cream thickens enough to form a soft peak, about 3 minutes. Alternatively, you can use a whisk or hand mixer and a large bowl to beat the cream until soft peaks form.
  • Fill two rocks glasses with ice. Pour 2 ounces of Kahlua and 2 ounces of rum into each glass, and stir to combine.
  • Using a spoon, divide the whipped cream evenly between the glasses. Use the back of the spoon to smooth it into an even layer that covers the surface of the drink. Dust the tops with cocoa powder, garnish each glass with a half of a Ladyfinger cookie, and serve.
