If you’re like most people in the world, you’ll get nervous on test days, but if you’re a politician and have spent millions of dollars to get votes, you’re shitting yourself on primary days. There’s a certain type of person that could handle that much pressure and most of us probably couldn’t, that’s when it’s time to channel THE DUDE.
So let’s pretend the New Hampshire primaries are beginning, you got millions spent and you need better results than you had in Iowa. Your drink and Dueling Weapon of choice is a White Russian. Let’s get through it all.
“This is a very complicated case, Maude. You know, a lotta ins, a lotta outs,
a lotta what-have-yous. And, uh, a lotta strands to keep in my head, man.
Lotta strands in old Duder’s head.” ~ The Dude
The drink, made famous by The Big Lebowski, it’s 2 part VODKA and 1 part KAHLÚA, but that could be replaced with Baileys™ or Godiva® Milk Chocolate Liqueur.
- 1 1/2 ounces vodka
- 3/4 ounce Kahlua
- 3/4 ounce heavy cream
- old-fashioned glass
White Russian Instructions:
Shake well with cracked ice, then strain into a chilled Old-Fashioned glass (it’ll look less wicked than in a martini glass; that’s important). Some folks build this one on the rocks, floating the cream on top. No, don’t do that, it’s not Dude-like.
Here are some images to get you inspired this weekend.
