Drinks & A Movie: Big Lebowski Achiever's Edition
Here at the Liquor Snob offices, we consider The Big Lebowski to be nature's perfect movie. It's got everything. A crazy John Goodman sporting shooting glasses and at one point, an Uzi. A sublime John Turturro playing a bowling pederast named "The Jesus." A portly Jeff Bridges sucking white russians out of his beard. The blond guy from Fargo playing a character named Karl Hungus, who comes to fix the cable. A missing toe. Tara Reid before she became a raving drunk, and we should know...we smell our own.
If you haven't seen this movie, you have to mix up a batch of White Russians and see it right now. And then you have to watch it again. And again. Until you get it. Until you realize the Coen brothers pried open your skull and scooped out the contents onto film. There will be a quiz.
Whether you've seen it or not, you also need to pick up the Achiever's Edition, which apparently contains the "widescreen CE (collector's Edition) together with The Big Lebowski Bowling Shammy Towel, 4 Collectible Coasters that include photos and quotable lines from the movie, and 8 Exclusive Photo Cards from Jeff Bridges’ personal collection."
Buy your copy of the Big Lebowski Achiever's Editionnow, or pick up the Big Lebowski Widescreen Collector's Editionat Amazon. Her life is in your hands, dude.
Oh, and if you're wracking your brain to remember how to mix them, here's a recipe for White Russians (AKA Caucasians). Substitute non-dairy creamer for light cream at your own risk.
