No, not the Bolshevik kind. It’s the vodka-cream-kaluha kind. An article from the New York Times studies the recent revival of interest in the drink inspired by, of course, The Dude from The Big Lebowski. They also mention variations on the drink, although they don’t talk about when The Dude makes one at Maude’s with powdered milk, which disgusts me every time I think about it.
Skeptics like Mr. Doudoroff would probably blanch at a variation called the White Trash Russian. “You take a bottle of Yoo-hoo,” Mr. Russell said, “drink half, then fill it with vodka and enjoy.”
