The White Russian is decadent and sophisticated. Combining vodka, Kahlúa and cream and serving it on the rocks create a delicious alternative to adult milkshakes.
The White Russian came about in the ’60s when someone added a bit of cream to the Black Russian. It would be a great story to say that the White Russian’s star rose from that point on, but unfortunately that would not be true.
The truth is the White Russian suffered a bit from a stodgy, antiquated reputation until the 1998 movie “The Big Lebowski” came along and breathed new life into the cocktail with Jeff Bridge’s character, The Dude, sipping it exclusively.
Add the vodka and Kahlúa to an Old Fashioned glass with ice.
Top with the heavy cream and stir.
