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").
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.
- 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.
