Drink of the Week: Tahoe Bowl’s The Dude


This week’s featured drink is Tahoe Bowls The Dude.
Robert Galloway/Tahoe Daily Tribune

This week’s Drinks segment showcases unique types of beer, wine, and cocktails to try at one of the countless breweries, bars, and restaurants around the Basin.

We think this week’s feature might take the cake if there were drink offerings and location matches in heaven. I have to assume that you haven’t seen the Coen brothers’ classic “The Big Lebowski.” If you have, this column may cause an extra smile as you reminisce.

In that movie, the drink of choice is White Russian. This cocktail contains some familiar ingredients, but serves as a mashup with Colorado his Bulldog. Please let me explain.



Instead of plain vodka, it has a little more vanilla vodka flavor. Kahlua works as a coffee ingredient in place of heavier creams. Its Skinner cousin (half and half) serves as the creamy character. Then a splash of cola tops it off along with a maraschino cherry.

Along with the sweetness of cola, vanilla comes to the fore. Kahlua (with the help of vodka) is what goes the rest of the way. I had some serious flashbacks to ice cream floats given the combination of creaminess and vanilla in this drink. Feel free to take that idea and let us know how it tastes.



Overall, this drink is very enjoyable and an easy companion for a few frames. If your bowling game is the same as mine, it might make you better.

I believe you can also order this drink under some other name. If you’re not into brevity, His Dudeness, Duder, or El Duderino. Either way, this drink will last.

The Tahoe Bowl is located at 1030 Fremont Avenue in South Lake Tahoe. For more information, please call 530-544-3700.
