The White Russian is a twist on the Black Russian (it becomes white with added cream) and seems to have been invented some time in the 1960's. However the drinks popularity skyrocketed in the 90's when it was featured in the Coen brothers film, The Big Lebowski, as the titular Dude's drink of choice.
