The boy and his poison: Jimmy's Caucasian

Anyone who has seen the Coen Brother's movie The Big Lebowski will understand the lure of the White Russian. I defy anyone to watch more than about 30 minutes of that film without developing an inexplicable craving for bowling and the velvety creaminess of a drink which you can knock back like Nesquik. Whilst there's a right way to make them and plenty of variations on the theme, I've been waiting to share this little spin on the recipe until you can all get hold of the main ingredient: Jimmy's Iced Coffee.

Since it first popped up on a packaging blog I've been hoarding cartons of this stuff in my fridge, occasionally even using it as a substitute for cereal milk. Available in full fat or light, its nothing but lovely ethically sourced white coffee laiden with demerara sugar. The simplicity of their recipe is where the beauty of the drink as a cocktail ingredient comes from. Pick yourself up a pint of the skinny stuff from Ocado, Waitrose (or even chill your own coffee) and you have the base of an incredibly light and even more complex white russian, or as I like to call it, Jimmy's Caucasian.

You'll need:
  • 2 oz Vodka
  • 1 oz Kahlua/Tia Maria
  • A generous slug of Jimmy's Iced Coffee (full fat or light)
Shake it:
  • Drop the coffee liqueur and vodka into an ice filled shaker
  • Give it a firm shake
  • Top up with chilled Jimmy's Skinny Iced Coffee 
  • Give it a whisk with one of those amazing little milk frothers and serve.
And what other drink gives you a cool moustache when you're drinking it?
