The Dude Cocktail

Abide by this wintery version of Lebowski's favorite drink

The Dude

Mixologist Xavier Herit has written the book on cocktails. (He was the force behind the Daniel Boulud cocktail book.) He's found a new home at New York City's NoMa Hotel in SoHo and revamped their entire bar program. The Dude in the cult classic spawned an entire generation who now orders a White Russian without irony. Herit riffed on the classic cocktail with a splash of cold brew coffee. Perfect when you've woken up on the floor and discovered your rug has been stolen.

  • ¾ Ounce Stumptown Coffee Brew

  • ½ Ounce heavy cream
  • ½ Ounce Demerara
  • 1 whole egg
