But, is this cocktail truly a dessert?

The most popular dessert cocktail in the Great Lakes State is served cold, but not frozen. Cherries do not typically garnish this particular drink, but serving one with a cherry on top would not be horrible.

We have never even heard the term 'dessert cocktail' until now.

Everyone knows a Bloody Mary is a meal in a glass, so who are we to say there is no such thing as a dessert cocktail?

What is Michigan's favorite dessert cocktail?

Here's a hint - The Dude Abides. If you are a fan of the movie 'The Big Lebowski', chances are you have guessed that Michigan's favorite dessert cocktail is a White Russian.

According to Coventry, a White Russian is America's go-to dessert cocktail. Can you name a competing dessert cocktail? Options are as follows,

  • Pineapple Upside Down Cake
  • Grasshopper
  • Bushwacker
  • Carjillo
  • Hott Buttered Rum
  • Sgroppino
  • Strawberry Shortcake
  • Mudslide

We had no idea there were so many dessert cocktails to choose from.

Michigan is not the only state that appreciates a White Russian, it is the top dessert cocktail choice in 17 states.


Does anyone else suddenly feel like mixing up a pitcher of White Russians, putting on a robe, and watching 'The Big Lebowski'?
