The basic White Russian is made with vodka, coffee liqueur and cream. With a pleasantly smooth consistency and touch of sweetness, it's a delicious drink to enjoy anytime, whether you're curled up by the fire or warming up after a winter hike. 

A curious fact about the White Russian is that it doesn't actually have anything to do with the country - it was simply given the name because it contains vodka. 

There are many ways you can spice up this cocktail to create tasty frozen versions of this classic White Russian. Here are seven winter-ready versions to make in your Margaritaville® Frozen Concoction Maker®
