Tant Sannie's White Russian

Sports fans all over the world are in the grip of soccer or football (depending where you from) fever and backing their favourite team. So this month, we thought we'd mix it up with a special cocktail inspired by the host country, Russia, and our very own premier heritage liqueur, Tant Sannie se Melktert. And what better way to enjoy the live soccer on cold winter evenings South African time, than with a glass of White Russian, the classic cocktail from the land of Tsars and Tolstoy, and vodka of course! It is easy to make, creamy, indulgent, and will make for cosy viewing in front of the fireplace.


  • 30 ml coffee liqueur
  • 30 ml vodka
  • 30 ml Tant Sannie se Melktert liqueur
  • 30 ml pouring cream
  • Ice cubes


Fill a short cocktail glass with ice cubes. Add coffee liqueur and vodka, finish up with a layer of Tant Sannie se Melktert liqueur and cream. To get the picture-perfect two layered look, pour the Tant Sannie and cream slowly over the back of a spoon onto the coffee liqueur and vodka mixture. Sprinkle some cinnamon on top to garnish, put your feet up and enjoy the match! 


As Tant Sannie would say, “Life just got Lip Lek Lekker ” with the first-ever release of Tant Sannie se recipe / resepte book.
