This is the Dude's drink in The Big Lebowski, with which I am sure you are all familiar.
Caucasian VS. White Russian

While the recipe above is a great one, it is unfortunately the recipe for a White Russian not a Caucasian. The two drinks are very similar, but there is one key difference; a White Russian contains vodka, a Caucasian does not.
In other words, to make a Caucasian just omit vodka from the recipe above. My rating is based on the fact that I like a good White Russian but unfortunately it's no Caucasian.

It is a bitching drink but the cocksucker before me is right.....the first douchbag is wrong.
Who cares what you call it!

Caucasian vs. White Russian? Who cares. Vodka is a key ingredient in the Caucasian. Bottom line, IT'S THE SAME DRINK! Kahlua and cream without the vodka is just that...Kahlua and Cream. I do however, use milk rather that half and half. Fewer calories, but just as delicious!
You sure about that?

I was under the impression that a white russian contained milk (yuck).

I heard that if you add some salt when you're mixing in the cream or milk it becomes a little creamier.
Fellas and Gals...White Russin/Caucasian, They're both the same thing.

I've been a bartender since the mid 80`s...White Russian is the original name of the cocktail and "Caucasian" is just the nickname for it. No different than a proud american calling french fries "american fries". And yes...White Russian is made with cream or milk for substitute.

yes, a little bit of salt thickens and makes it a little creamier. And the Dude uses vodka, watch the movie.

In the movie the dude also calls it a white russian in the scene with the doctor. So yes, it's the same thing.
