How To Make The Best White Russian Recipe

The White Russian was once a not-so-well-known cocktail; that all changed when The Dude came along. The White Russian was first mixed up back in 1949 when Gustave Tops, a Belgian bartender, dreamt up two luxurious cocktails, the Black and the White Russian. The difference? Isn't it obvious? The Black Russian lacks cream. Looking to get creative? Make some alterations of your own - milk is a common substitute for cream. Although the cocktail is going on seventy years, it really only burst into the American consciousness when The Dude aka The Big Lebowski brought it to the big screen.
