On this Thirsty Thursday, we’d like to commemorate the White Russian. There’s something strangely nostalgic for us in this drink, which brings back memories of late nights in college playing drinking games and watching The Big Lebowski.

On those late nights, we seized every opportunity to chug multiple glasses of that glorious creation of vodka, Kahlua, and cream as we kept up with The Dude and his unnatural indulgence. We’d always feel a little nauseous by the time we were spun up and down in the bowling ball, and would fight sleep right around the time Donny has his heart attack, but we somehow managed to always come out on top, rising the next day feeling fine.

Risking the hangover we’re not sure we’ll be able to avoid, we’re thinking of having a rematch this weekend: The Literary Team vs. The Dude. Can we still keep up with The Dude in this epic battle? So for the win, here’s the recipe we’ll be using:

Mix 2 ounces vodka and 1 1/2 ounces Kahlua, pour over ice, fill glass with half and half. Drink like The Dude because The Dude Abides…
