A white Russian is a great winter cocktail.

The Daily Meal's editors, contributors, and readers dig into some pretty great restaurants, festivals, and meals. There's not always enough time to give a full review of a restaurant or describe in depth why a place, its food, and the people who prepare it are noteworthy, so Snackshot of the Day does what photographs do best, rely on the image to do most of the talking.

Today's Snackshot is of a White Russian. The Olympics may be over, but that doesn't mean we have to stop imbibing in our favorite themed drinks. A White Russian is made from vodka (hence the name ''Russian"), coffee liqueur, and cream or milk. The White Russian evolved from the Black Russian, a drink of the same ingredients sans cream. The White Russian has exceeded its relative in popularity because of its role as the signature drink of The Dude in The Big Lebowski.
