White Russian



Preptime: 2 minutes

Servings: 1

Cream... From Alexanders and Grasshoppers to clarified punches or egg nog, cream is a must-have in a bar. The White Russian is like a crane kick; performed correctly there is no defense. Surprisingly it is actually a Black Russian with a float, but said float changes the cocktail from a coffee/spirit serve into a liquid dessert. It varies from the Big Lebowski caucasian which uses milk instead of cream and is more of a highball.
