If you replace the vodka of a black Russian with brandy you have this drink called a brandy separator. It's an equally pleasant drink and you can add cream to make a white brandy seperator.

All of these drinks are connected and very easy to remember. This brandy version is just as good, if not better ​than the vodka drink and it is a great cold weather cocktail.

Recipe Variation

To make a white brandy separator, mix 1 1/2 ounce brandy and 1/2 ounce coffee liqueur in an old-fashioned glass over ice. Float cream on top to fill.

How Strong Is the Separator Cocktail?

These cocktails are not the tamest drinks because liquor makes up most of the volume. However, they are smooth and certainly not the strongest you can make. The separator's alcohol content falls in the 27 percent ABV (54 proof) range. The small amount of cream makes very little difference in the white separator.
