Blue Dust

601 Amity St., Homestead
Drink: Chai White Russian

Ingredients: House-infused chai vodka, Kahlua, cream

Our take: Cardamom and clove add warmth to this creamy, mild classic. The spices bring out the coffee flavors in the Kahlua. Best served ice-cold but undiluted, this drink is almost too easy of a sipper. 

vs.

Murray Avenue Grill

1720 Murray Ave., Squirrel Hill
Drink: White Russian

Ingredients: Vodka, Kahlua, heavy cream

Our take: The classic recipe makes this cocktail a smooth, rich drink, with no alcoholic heat and a strong resemblance to the texture and flavor of heavily creamed coffee. No wonder the Dude liked it so much.
