How do you mix your Caucasians?
« on: July 10, 2013, 06:26:52 PM »
I'm  quite a recent convert to White Russians, but I do like a good cocktail: it helps ease you into your evening, it's a threshold between work and play. Are we pre-cocktail or post cocktail? Very different times of day.


So how do you mix your White Russians?


Here's mine.


Take a hi-ball glass out of the freezer and fill it about a third of the way up with ice.
Add two measures* of vodka.
Add a measure of whatever coffee liqueur you've got (I make my own).
Top up with semi-skimmed milk - got to keep the body limber as well as the mind. Pour the milk down the side of the glass so that it floats on top, giving it that split-level latte lookalike thing.


I make the coffee liqueur by making a pint of espresso (takes about 1/3 to 1/2 a pound of coffee to make it), adding about 1/2 a pound of sugar, simmering it in a pan until the sugar is dissolved, let it cool, then add a vanilla pod and about 20 - 30 coffee beans. Add a bottle of dark rum and pour into a Kilner jar or similar. Put it in a cupboard for a month or so, turning it over every few days. Strain it through a coffee filter paper and bottle the sucker.


*A measure... hmmm... some nights a measure is this big, other nights a measure is this big... It's all about relativity, not absolutes, you know?

Man, that homemade Kahlua sounds delicious (and strong!).  You may have inspired me to new cocktail heights.

As it is now, I make mine a lot like the Dude does -- pour it all in a glass til it's just about right, sip deeply, and chew away at the ice.

Recipes sound mighty tasty. Lately I've been making a variation using Amaretto, instant coffee, a splash of vodka, milk and fresh ice.

Amaretto sounds good. Can't keep amaretto in the house, though. I mean, I can buy it, but if I do then I drink it all...

Hey fellow dudes, I was reading my cocktail book when something occured to me :

the way the Dude makes his cocktail is closer to the Alexander the Great cocktail (aderivative from the Velvet Hammer) than the White Russian...
But then I also figured out that a tiny change of proportion in one given cocktail give it another name.

On a minor remark, the white russian is prepared with a shaker for the icecubes, coffee liquor, and vodka, then after pouring it in a glass, a spoon for the cream, and no icecube in the glass.

I know it might be a total undude, but I was questionning myself about this.

Also I read about some derivatives : the black russian (no cream), the red russian (black russian but replace the coffee liquor with cherry brandy), the green russian (don't remember about it). Do you think replacing the coffe liquor by cocoa liquor would work?

I just go for the standard recipte, but sometimes I make White Mexican (tequila instead of vodka) or White Bosnian (rakia instead of vodka). I wouldn't say there's much difference taste-wise, but I just despise vodka on its own.

And here I have been just splashing in some vodka, kahlua, and whatever dairy product I have within immediate reach without realizing there could be an art to the creation of a Caucasian.

Going to have to look into roystonoboogie's preparation, which almost sounds like a meditation / preparation of the most holiest of drinks.
Dude or Dude not. There is no should.

I begin with ice, as most here do filling my glass 3/4 of the way. Then I add the vodka, up to the ice about half way, making it maybe approximately 1/4 cup, then comes the Kahlua, about a shot or shot and a half, finally the half and half just enough to make it perfect. I don't really measure anything to much or make it exactly the same each time, I just let the Dudeliness flow and guide.
Well, that's your perception.

Pour 1 measure of kahlua in an old fashioned glass, take a handful of ice cubes and wrap them in a towel and proceed to whack the shit out of them with the biggest nearby kitchen appliance like for example a frying pan or toaster.
Dump result in glass and pour 3 measures of vodka in there. Take a carton of cream and place on top of washingmachine and select the spinning cycle. Wait a few minutes, pour into glass.
Add something suitable for stirring and perhaps one of those tiny umbrellas.

Am I the only nutter that uses half-n-half instead of milk?  Little thicker, just a bit sweet.  Oh and crushed ice so it's like a slushy.
