How to make a Black Russian

The Black Russian is as simple as it gets. Ice and two ingredients. If you like it sweeter then simply increase the Kahlua ratio.
Optionally, you can stir it in a mixing glass and pour over fresh ice but I like it's simplicity. If you do garnish, opt for a brandied cherry or a twist of lemon.
