Ok - so you may know this from the 1998 movie The Big Lebowski where this is the Dudes signature drink but the origins pre-date the movie by at least 30 years. This is a riff on the famous Black Russian cocktail, and probably the progenitor of the mudslide.
Whatever its a sweet 3 ingredient cocktail thats dessert in a glass.
P.s. Dont wimp out and use milk instead of cream: The Dude wouldnt be impressed.


Vodka 2 Ounce
Kahlua 1 Ounce
35% cream 1 Cup (16 tbs) (use as required)
Ice cubes 4 (or more)



Fill an Old Fashioned glass with ice, add the Vodka and Kahlúa. 

Top with 35% cream, stir and serve.
