A last minute addition to our Halloween Cocktail series, this Spiderweb Cocktail takes a traditional White Russian and gives it an easy Halloween update!
Black Russians are my go-to cocktail recipe, hands down, but if you’re not a Coke drinker it can be a bit of a sugar rush for you making a White Russian, which substitutes the Coke with cream, a better option. Start out adding a little less vodka than the recipe calls for, just to adjust for personal taste. I prefer for the Kahlua and cream to be the focus, with the vodka just adding a subtle kick so I go with 2 oz Kahlua and 1 oz vodka for my White Russian, though that’s not exactly traditional.
Adding a spiderweb to this classic cocktail recipe is super quick and easy and adds a fun and unexpected Halloween touch. All you need is a tube of black gel icing which you can also use for some cute Halloween dessert decorating.
Tip: I often order my liquor from Drizly because they have a quick delivery time (sometimes within 40 minutes) and no expensive mark-ups. Purchasing from them supports local retailers, too. You can order the Kahlua and Vodka needed for this recipe from them.

I really loved using my gorgeous Omishome Bartending Kit to make this recipe. The pretty bamboo holder contains all of the tools you need to make perfect cocktails, and those pretty gold tools add a touch of class to your home bar set-up.
How to Make a Spiderweb White Russian
Fill a cocktail shaker with ice and pour the liqueur, and cream overtop.
Give the whole thing a good shake and then strain into your highball glasses.
Using a black gel pen (the kind used for cakes), make three circles in the top of the drink – each one fitting inside the one before, like a target circle.
Take a toothpick and place it in the center of the smallest circle. Drag it out to the edge of the glass, and then repeat, forming a web pattern.
