The Rug

The Rug cocktail with overproof bourbon, coconut cream, and coffee liqueur

The Rug is mixologist Tyler Kleinow’s answer to the White Russian, a drink made even-more-famous in The Big Lebowski, one of our favorite films here at Cocktail Party HQ. Kleinow loved the movie, too, and set out to create a successor to the The Dude’s classic quaff.

The result is every bit as iconic as its namesake in the film. It tastes almost exactly like an iced sweet coffee, giving almost no hint to the bourbon it contains. Overproof bourbon is ideal here, if you have it. But it’s the coconut cream that really ties the room together, giving the drink a rich body and a gentle sweetness.

Terrific Design!

Absolutely love this app. Gives a great visual representation of the ingredients and the user interface is well designed. Been using it to learn how to make cocktails, the descriptions are great about the drinks. As a novice barman, I love that I am learning the origin of the drink and alternative ways to make the drink. Be prepared to have a wide range of alcohol at you disposal! I can make heaps of drinks with the decent home collection I have, but seeing all the recipes what I could make gets me excited! Highly recommended, everyone loves the person who makes excellent drinks!
