White Russian Cocktail Recipe

White Russian Cocktail Recipe

The White Russian is a decadent drink that adds luxury to your cocktail hour while remaining surprisingly easy to make. Combining vodka, Trader Vic's Macadamia Nut Liqueur and cream and serving it on the rocks creates a delicious alternative to adult milkshakes. 

The truth is the White Russian suffered a bit from it's uninspired, antiquated reputation until the 1998 movie “The Big Lebowski” came along and breathed new life into the cocktail with Jeff Bridges’ character, the Dude, sipping it exclusively—and constantly. 

2 ounces vodka⁠
1 ounce Kahlúa ( I sub the Kahlúa with Trader Vic's Macadamia Nut Liqueur ) You can thank me later 😂 ⁠
1 splash heavy cream or half and half


  1. Add the vodka and Kahlúa to a rocks glass filled with ice.

  2. Top with the heavy cream and stir.

  3. Enjoy! What else is there to do?
