The bartender's joke was a hit, and with time, the BLACK RUSSIAN became the forefather of a whole category of coffee cocktails. \r\n\r\n In the 60s and 70s, thanks to the pressure of propaganda, cocktail menus were full of surprising drinks that did not make it to the present day: the Dirty Black Russian (with cola), the Tall Black Russian (with cola, served in a highball), the Irish Russian or Smooth Black Russian (with Guinness), the Black Magic (with several drops of lemon juice and a twist of zest), and finally, the Brown Russian – with ginger ale.
