Happy Hour: White Russian

White Russians are my absolute favorite dessert drink. When I was in college, I always kept a bottle of vodka and Kahlua on hand in my freezer. Milk was only consumed when it was mixed in with a White Russian. Even when I was a bartender in Spain (where milk is an unheard of mixer) I would whip them up during after-hours, and taught all of my fellow Spanish bar-mates how to make them. As I was thinking about milk today, I realized I haven't had a White Russian in forever (definition of forever: a few months). If you have yet to have one, make one now—they are super yummy! For the recipe,

White Russian
From Barmeister

1 1/2 oz Vodka
3/4 oz Kahlua
3/4 oz Cream or Milk

  1. Mix the vodka and kahlua together in a cocktail shaker.
  2. Pour into glass filled with ice. Float the cream/milk on top.

Oh I used to love these... but I had a few too many a few too many times! I think I may indulge in one sometime soon! Everything in moderation...

I don't really drink, but White Russians always make me think of the Dude (el duderino) from the Big Lebowski. he always traveled with a WR. lol

Yeah, WR is that type of drink you need to have just one or two of. All that sugar upsets my tummy :(

I'm a bit afraid of White Russians, I must say. My mom got snockered on them at a Christmas party about 6 months after my younger brother was born, since it was the first time she'd really drank anything since she got pregnant. All I've heard about growing up was her 3 day hangover and how evil WR's are.

Interesting about this Spanish thing, my family is from spain and they mix milk with "Liquor 43," it tastes like caramel. I guess it is very, very, very old school so maybe is no longer in in Spain. It tasts very good, that much I must add. Rudeness is the weak man's imitation of strenght

when i was in college, my friends invented a drink for me. at the time, i was the only caucasian living in the asian studies house (everyone else was asian or asian-american) and i was a vegan. a mixture of soy and rice milk was used instead of milk and they named it the white asian. :rotfl: it tastes pretty creamy and good!
