Fill a rocks glass with ice cubes.
Add your favorite vodka.
Tip: To create the traditional layered look that the White Russian is known for, try slowly pouring the cream over the back of a spoon into the glass. Also, many classic cocktail purists whip the cream slightly in order to thicken its texture.
Serve with a straw. The layered look is only for serving
Optional: Garnish with a maraschino cherry
