We are about to get Lebowski up in here with our new series on the White Russian! We are going to spend the next several weeks talking about White Russian related topics. If you are new to Ramshackle Pantry, we spend time on a particular classic dish or cocktail. Not only do we share a classic recipe, but then we also dive deep into the topic and the lucky winner is the classic White Russian! We love covering history and I am excited to embark on this journey where I get to learn about the White Russian cocktail.
What I Hope To Cover In This Series
Well, obviously, I want to talk about White Russians. We definitely are going to make a White Russian, but only after we have dove deep into the topic so that we have a good understanding and feeling for the drink. That means we are going to look into the history of the cocktail. I suspect that we are going to also look into some of the cultural aspects of the White Russian. I mean, it certainly is an icon of the hit film, The Big Lebowski, and this will give me a great reason to watch the film again. In fact, I am really excited for that. Here, have some Lebowski, man.
In our previous series on Moscow Mules, we found that Vodka really is a new(ish) alcohol to the US that only started becoming widely consumed following WWII. Seeing how the White Russian may have played a role in this is sure to be interesting.
So, ladies and gentlemen, please take some time to subscribe to my email list if you want to stay up to date on this series! Seriously, this should be a fun one and I am pumped to learn with you and share some recipes.
