White Russian

A sweet cocktail for many occasions. It is the favorite drink of 'The Dude' in The Big Lebowski (where it is often jokingly called a "Caucasian"), and is also the name of a Kaizers Orchestra song (in Norwegian, "Kvite Russer").

Recipe 1

  • One part Kahlua
  • One-and-a-half parts vodka
  • Milk or cream

Mix the Kahlua and vodka (preferably very cold, either straight from the freezer or over ice as below) and top with milk or cream to taste.

Recipe 2

  • Two parts vodka
  • One part Kahlua
  • One part high-quality light cream

Shake the mix in a cocktail shaker with a half-scoop of ice for about 15 seconds, and then pour through a strainer over three or four cubes of ice in an old-fashioned style glass.
