Five O'Clock Somewhere

Welcome to Five O'Clock Somewhere, where it doesn't matter what time zone you're in; it's five o'clock somewhere. We'll look at rural life, especially as it happens in Rio Arriba County, New Mexico, cats, sailing (particularly Etchells racing yachts), and bits of grammar and Victorian poetry.

White Russian recipe

We'll all be drinking these in memory of our friend

The White Russian is a cocktail made with vodka, coffee liqueur, and milk, cream, or half and half. It was the favorite of our friend whom we lost last week. It was featured in the film The Big Lebowski and, according to Wikipedia, is the official cocktail of the IBA.

While looking up information about this drink, I found out that white Russian is also a type of hamster, horse, or marijuana. Interesting what one finds on the Web.

White Russian Ingredients

3/4 ounce each vodka and Kahlua liqueur
1 1/2 ounces cream or milk
ice cubes, optional

White Russian Recipe

A White Russian recipe is simple and making a White Russian drink is very easy. Just mix together the vodka and Kahlua in an old-fashioned glass. Then float the cream or milk on top last.

Ice cubes aren't necessary, but can be used. White Russian drinks are best served in chilled glasses, though.

Makes 1 White Russian cocktail drink

For variation on your White Russian recipe, try using vanilla vodka instead of plain vodka in your White Russian ingredients.

Thanks to Angela Harris for the recipe.
