White Russian Cocktail Info
The White Russian is a delicious and easy-to-make cocktail. A delightful alternative to adult milkshakes is what the White Russian is! Made with the Black Russian ingredients vodka and Kahlua with a splash of cream, and served on the rocks, of course.
In the 1960s, someone added some cream to the Black Russian to make it white. Both drinks are not Russian-derived; the name refers only to vodka, often associated with Russia.
It would be great to claim that the White Russian's rose from this point on, but that would not be true. The truth is that the White Russian suffered from a stodgy and antiquated reputation before the 1998 movie "The Big Lebowski", which featured Jeff Bridges as the Dude drinking it exclusively, was released. It is a popular culture's greatest drink-related success, right up there alongside Carrie Bradshaw's influence on the Cosmo. If you're looking to order it as the Dude, you can always call the bartender for a "Caucasian". They will understand what you mean.
If you are making a White Russian at your home, use quality vodka and good heavy cream. You can use half-and-half in pinch but it will make a thin drink. Remember: You're aiming for decadence.
