New Recipe: The White Russian
It's fall, bring on the cream drinks! The most famous of which is arguably the White Russian, aka the definition of a guilty pleasure. I'll admit I have a soft spot for these. It was the first cocktail I had that I couldn’t wait to finish. I was 16 and attending the Bar Mitzvah of my friend’s younger brother (they had a cool Aunt who got us drinks from the bar). Sure, it may not be what you'd call a sophisticated cocktail, but who cares. Good is good.
On the page, are a recipe, a little jaunt into it's history - which of course includes "The Big Lebowski" and the Dude - and some advice on variations, specifically the White Russian's close relative, the Mudslide.
