The White Russian is a cocktail that everyone should know how to do it. That comes from the simple ingredients (vodka, coffee liqueur, and cream), that anyone has at home.
Back in 1949, Black Russian was the first version of this drink, but without the cream. Its name was first mention in 1965 on California. This drink's name doesn't have origin in Russia, but it's named due to the main ingredient being vodka.
This cocktail got famous after the release of the iconic movie "The Big Lebowski" in 1998. Throughout the film, this cocktail was consumed frequently by the main character, Jeffrey "The Dude" Lebowski,
