I am a past lover of the ultimate "Black Russian" so..... when I read these ingredient's I hopped in my car and perused Kroger's shelves for Vanilla Coke and stopped at our hooch store for some Absolut! What a pleasant surprise and delight! My partner in crime refers to this as SUMMER! Thanks!
I love these - but I use vanilla vodka and vanilla coke!!
Very good and refreshing. Simply tastes like vanilla coke. Not sure why it is thought of to taste like a black russian when they are made with coffee flavored liquour? Vanilla coke is hard to find so I used coke and vanilla vodka.
This was sooo good!
Delicious! If you don't have vanilla cola just add a small splash of vanilla extract.
These have an improper name around here, but they are proper enough to get a darn good buzz. Best way to get lit is to pour one finger of vodka, one finger of vanilla vodka with a float of vanilla cola, if you can still find it. Pound it back and make another!
I already know this drink of old but never realised it was named monkey shine! If you share a real love of vanilla replace ordinary vodka with vanilla absolut...beauty!
dont worry too much about measurements, a good glug of each and you cant go far wrong!
Thanks for posting this one, everyone should give it a go!
An easy adult beverage. I don't care for run and coke, so this is a nice change.
