What To Drink To Prepare For The New Hampshire Primary

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.

In the Big Lebowski, The Dude Drinks 7 White Russians.
A lot of the Dude’s clothes in the movie were Jeff Bridges’s own clothes, including his Jellies sandals.
The Dude says “man” 147 times in the movie, nearly 1.5 times a minute.
In a version that was edited for television broadcasts, the famous line “This is what happens when you fuck a stranger in the ass!” was changed to “This is what happens when you find a stranger in the Alps!”, which is regularly cited as one of the most “creative” edits made for a film to be aired on TV.
“Careful, man, there’s a beverage here!” ~ The Dude
