When we started playing around with fall flavors, butterscotch was not at the top of our list, instead going for lots of apple cider, spice and maple. But when we came up with our Salted Bourbon Butterscotch Sauce, we knew we would have to come up with a cocktail to use it in!

We were kicking around a couple of ideas on a recent weekend and happened to watching TV while doing it when one of those classic weekend movies came up on our screen, The Big Lebowski. Almost simultaneously, we both said “White Russians!” and we knew we had a cocktail we would have to make. The result? The Salted Bourbon Butterscotch White Russian!

In the movie, the White Russian is said to be the perfect delivery vehicle for all of man’s culinary vices, fat, sugar, caffeine and alcohol. A cocktail made with vodka, coffee liqueur and cream, the White Russian is actually a spin off the Black Russian cocktail which was invented during the Russian vodka crazy of the 1950s. A splash of heavy cream made the Black Russian into a White Russian and makes the White Russian a real smooth rich cocktail.

One of the big components of the White Russian is the coffee liqueur which brings a big flavor of coffee to the cocktail. We figured that lots of folks like salted caramel lattes, so why not a cocktail that emulates the flavors found in a caramel latte? We subbed in a caramel infused vodka (but feel free to use a caramel flavored vodka) for the plain vodka, and started the drink out with a light hint of caramel that worked well with the coffee flavors of the coffee liqueur.

We decided that the caramel vodka was to subtle, and if we were going to make a cocktail with a big bold flavor, we should use our delicious Salted Bourbon Butterscotch sauce. The butterscotch Sauce brings a rich deep dark caramel flavor to the Salted Bourbon Butterscotch White Russian. The hints of bourbon also added a well rounded complexity that worked really well in this cocktail.  The extra sweetness from the butterscotch sauce makes the Salted Bourbon Butterscotch White Russian a little sweet, but still really satisfying to sip on.

We hope you will give our Salted Bourbon Butterscotch White Russian a try this Holiday season! We think the Dude might just enjoy this take on his signature cocktail! Cheers!

  1. Oh my… this looks amazing. I typically take a mulled wine to our holiday celebrations, but I may have to make ahead enough of your yummy-looking Salted Bourbon Butterscotch sauce to take too. I’m sure to be the favorite family member at our “cocktail hour” before dinner!!
    Thank you so much for sharing!
    *Hugs*

  2. I’ve made the sauce twice in the past week, it’s SO good drizzled over brown butter pecan cookies. I’ve been too lazy to track down vanilla vodka but I think that’s on the agenda for today.

  3. I absolutely have to try this drink as i love butterscotch and caramel. I love drinks that are more dessert like and this one sounds perfect. I saved this to try later this weekend.

  4. This made me want to drink a gallon of this and watch The Big Lebowski! Which I haven’t seen BTW haha. This is another fabulous creation from you guys. I have everything except the vodka…it’s not too late to run to the store though. Happy Friday!

  5. Im thinking this is going to be my reward for going Black Friday shopping with my husband…. I mean…. It is super rough and I deserve it!
