What is a white russian?
So called because vodka was the primary ingredient, the white russian enjoyed a period of popularity during the disco years of the 1970s before fading into obscurity. That is until the release of The Big Lebowski in 1998, where it was the go-to drink for Jeff Bridges’ the Dude, who drinks nine of them throughout the film.
To make this recipe vegan, substitute the cream for your favourite dairy-free single cream. We like using oat-based ones best.
