White Caribbean? Dudette? I'm trying really hard to come up with a clever name for my current cocktail of choice, but I'm not having much luck.
It probably already has a name, as it's not that incredibly inventive. All I've done is take your basic White Russian (which, for the innocents among you, contains vodka, coffee-flavored liqueur, and cream) and used coconut rum instead of vodka. My understanding is that the drink got its name because vodka is a Russian booze, so obviously, a change must be made. The Caribbean is where most rum is produced, but White Caribbean sounds grammatically incorrect and possibly offensive. The Dude loved his White Russians (I'm sorry, his Caucasians), and since this is a lighter, sweeter, more girly version, perhaps I could stretch and call it a Dudette? No, I'm not satisfied.
I'll gladly take your suggestions, but for now, I'll be calling it a White Sissy because this drink doesn't taste like alcohol at all. Nope, it tastes like dessert, and that's just fine with me. In fact, it's my preference.
Makes 1 drink (but may be replicated two or three times more, depending on the kind of day the consumer has had)
- 1 part coconut rum (I prefer Malibu)
- 1 part coffee-flavored liqueur (Kahlua for me, please)
- 4 parts milk, cream, or half-and-half
- Shredded sweetened coconut, toasted, for garnish
Prepare your glass by dipping the rim into water and then into the toasted coconut, rolling it around to coat the lip nicely. Add ice, then pour the liquids into the glass, stir, and savor. Or chug. Your drinking habits, frequencies, and quantities aren't any of my business.
