Bryant Lake Bowl
810 W. Lake St., Mpls.
Inspired by The Dude in The Big Lebowski, I have no doubt that this would be a great drink to have while wearing a bathrobe. Better yet , you can have one on the sidewalk of the BLB while watching the world go by.
The Dude-A-Reeno blends Stoli Vanil Vodka, Kahlua, and Bailey's into peaceful harmony. This is a cocktail that causes drink-envy--don't be surprised if the idea to have one catches on with your friends and other patrons, as did during my visit where we ended up with a table full of Dude-A-Reenos.
I predict a comeback of the White Russian and its variations coming soon. So very tasty, they are not just for ditching out of high school and raiding your parent's liquor cabinet anymore.
