Cocktail Legend White Russian

1965 | California, USA The white variation on the "Russian" became popular even faster than its black predecessor. The White Russian was a disco hit. Whereas the most fashionable ladies of the Prohibition era drank their Brandy Alexanders in secret, their disco babe granddaughters danced on tables together with glasses of "Caucasians." Jeff Bridges' character in "The Big Lebowski" cemented this cocktail's place in the classical canon, while simultaneously bringing the mix of liqueur and cream out of the realm of exclusively girly drinks. More than a few fans of the genre are certain: in order to really feel the Cohen brothers' mood, you need to mix and drink a "Caucasian" every time the Dude does. This is something he does fairly constantly over the course of the film - which is to say, for about two hours.

Official sources, including the Oxford English Dictionary, confirm that the term White Russian appeared on 21 November 1965 in the Oakland Tribune, which recommended mixing "equal parts Southern (Comfort, we assume), vodka, and cream." We should note that already in the 1930s, bartending guides featured a cocktail with vodka, creme de cacao, and cream, called simply the Russian. Contemporary recommendations for making a White include many variations: the White Canadian (with goat's milk), the Blind Russian (with Irish cream), the White Mexican (with almond milk and aranciata), the Blushin Russian (with raspberry vodka), the Colorado Bulldog (with cola), and finally the Anna Kournikova, featuring skim milk.
