Adam McDowell’s book Drinks: A User’s Guide offers ways to enjoy a cocktail under less-than-ideal circumstances, calling such a drink an ad-hoctail, including this Off-White Russian No. 1, a boozy version of a childhood favorite.


  • 1 ounce vodka
  • 1 8-ounce chocolate milk carton
  • Garnish: straw


  1. Pour the vodka into the chocolate milk carton, close the spout, and shake.

  2. Drink through a straw, if available.
