Basic answer example
"I became obsessed with White Russians after seeing the movie, The Big Lebowski, for the first time. Jeff Bridges is my hero, so I started drinking White Russians after this movie came out. I make mine in a rocks glass filled to the top with ice cubes. I add 1 part vodka, 1 part heavy cream, and 1 part Kahlua. I do prefer to use top-shelf vodka whenever possible as it's a smoother finish."
