After reading my partner's blog, and her SSS Question and Answer, I started to plan for her surprise. I seem to be finding lots of little things instead of one big gift. It turns out my SSS partner has strange needs and wants. Who doesn't? I'm trying my best to surprise her. So far I've been to the mall (didn't get anything there - I just like to go to the mall), the fabric shop, a bookstore, and a few other places around town collecting her Christmas treats.
After a long day, I've come home to make one of my favorite wintertime drinks. I guess my family thinks of this as a winter drink because it was in the winter when our Baby made us watch "The Big Lebowski." I can't recommend this movie, I didn't care for the language or the plot - if there was one - and something about John Goodman really creeps me out... Face it, except for Sam Elliott and the White Russian - the movie is a total waste.
Since it appears Mr. Elliott isn't able to join us tonight, we'll just have to make do with a White Russian...
1 1/2 oz. Vodka
2 oz. Kahlua
2 1/2 oz Cream (yes, whipping cream... don't worry, it's o.k., it's almost Christmas)
Hand full of ice
Put everything into a cocktail shaker. Shake until top is frosty.
Pour into your favorite old fashioned glass.
Tell me, is it really a White Russian if it's made with Texas Vodka?
