Dirty Mother or Separator


Old-fashioned Glass

Glass Guide- Old-fashioned Glass

If you replace the vodka of a Black Russian with brandy you have this drink called a Dirty Mother, or a Separator. Then, if you were to fill that glass with cream you would have a Dirty White Mother. They are all connected and very easy to remember. This brandy version is just as good, if not better than the vodka drink and is a great cold weather cocktail.
