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.

Far superior to any other cocktail app

I have only been using the app for a short time but already I can tell that it is far superior to any other cocktail app I have used until now. The user interface is easy to use and visually appealing, and the search function displays recipes as you type which will make this app easy and fast to use. Highly recommended for use as a bartender or server, or at home making drinks for a party or night in. The developer also promises recipes added regularly and the customer support is second to none.
