I’m an achiever ….that’s right. So is my husband and son. A house of achievers. What on earth am I blathering about now…..well, we are fans of the movie The Big Lebowski.
Actually, pretty much anything written by the Coen Brothers – love their movies. One thing you can count on seeing repeatedly in The Big Lebowski is a Caucasian, firmly plugged into The Dude’s hand, his mustache dripping with the White Russian’s creamy goodness every sip he takes. We watched it again a few nights back and, as usual, howled through the scenes, throwing back a couple of white and a couple of black Russians.

The Dude: Hey, careful, man, there's a beverage here!
White Russian (also called a Caucasian): 2 parts vodka, 1 part coffee liqueur (such as Kahlúa) and 1 part cream. Served with ice in a low ball glass.
Black Russian: 2 parts vodka, 1 part coffee liqueur Served with ice in a low ball glass. (Just leave out the cream)
*We actually use half-n-half
This movie is obviously not for everyone….we all have different tastes, and I know the F-Bomb offends some. If that’s the case, take a pass on the movie but by all means, mix up a nice Caucasian sometime and relax. Don’t worry about the calories because …you just can’t when you make a few of these.
The Dude: Yeah, well, you know, that's just, like, your opinion, man.
