White Russian Drink Recipe

If you’re looking for the white russian drink recipe, you can either watch the video below for a step-by-step tutorial, or simply scroll below the video to see the list of ingredients.

The movie and cult classic, The Big Lebowski brought back the popularity of the White Russian drink and now it’s become a must-know for bartenders.

Even if you’re not big on mixing milk with your alcohol, you won’t be disappointed if you try a White Russian. And, if you simply won’t budge on the milk issue, leave it out and try a Black Russian – the same as a White Russian just minus the milk.

Some bars make their White Russian Drinks with cream and some simply use milk. Either way, its a tasty alternative to your standard mixed drinks.
