Russian Quaalude

Russian Quaalude Cocktail has very interesting name (as for me as graduated pharmacist) and unintelligible recipe. The Quaalude – second part of “Sex, drug, rock ‘n’ roll!!!” is unique culture forming medcines. Some interesting facts about this pharmaceutical phenomenon you can read here.

I use recipe of Russian Quaalude Cocktail from Dale DeGroff.

The Russian Quaalude Cocktail (Метаквалон, он же Кваалюд)

Russian Quaalude

20 ml vodka
20 ml Kahlua
20 ml amaretto liqueur
30 ml cream
Shake and strain into a rocks glass.

Nothing special, Russian Quaalude Cocktail has sweet and creamy taste – on the line with Screaming Orgasm and Mudslide :) But on closer view Russian Quaalude (Dale DeGroff recipe) is near relation of famous White Russian (with Italian necktie) :)

  1. My husband and I made this last night. It was a nice twist on our usual White Russian..but I felt that the amaretto really dominated the drink. We did not need dessert after drinking this!

    I might pull back on the amaretto (almond is quite the powerful flavour) and crank up the coffee. It is a keeper!
