White Russian Krispies
Not your everyday breakfast! This is an edible version of the White Russian cocktail traditionally made with Kahlua coffee liquor, vodka and milk or cream. In this fun edible version of the cocktail, the Rice Krispies cereal is coated with Kahlua coffee liquor and served with vodka milk. And to complete the setup, why not add a screwdriver cocktail to represent that freshly squeezed orange juice we all enjoy for breakfast?
This edible version of the White Russian cocktail is an idea of molecular mixologist Eben Freeman.
