Whether you’re a fan of “The Dude” from the classic movie The Big Lebowski, who always had an iced White Russian clinking in his hand. Or simply a fan of White Russian Cocktails themselves…

I’ve got an extreme naughty-but-nice treat for you today!

This 3 ingredient wonder is a fabulous cocktail for the holidays when we’re all willing to splurge a little.


To make “The Dude” White Russian Floats, all you need is:

  • Vodka
  • Kahlua
  • Ice Cream

Easy enough, right?

After all, a traditional White Russian Recipe is simply a mixture of vodka, kahlua, heavy cream, and ice. So why not substitute ice cream for the cream and ice??

You can use vanilla ice cream to offer a more traditional taste, or up the ante with Java Chip (coffee and chocolate) ice cream.

I choose the latter.

The foamy sweetness from the ice cream, and the occasional chocolate chunk, make “The Dude” White Russian Floats a party sensation this holiday season!

With 4.5 ounces of liquor in each float, I think “The Dude” himself would fully approve.

I can just imagine him holding one of these babies, while laying flat out on his rug.

Sounds like the perfect way to celebrate. *wink*
