Black Russian

There is an assumption that the “dark name” cocktail deserved because of the looming threat of the Cold War. The combination of ingredients first appeared in 1949. Authorship is attributed to bartender Gustave, who worked in those years at the Metropol in Brussels. Cocktail, referring directly to Russia by its name, apparently, was based on the stereotype of the Russian spirit and vodka, as the main ingredient.
