Best White Russian 

Riverwood Café

Behold the White Russian. It is an underrated drink, usually because it's made in dainty glasses, with too much ice and not enough of that most sacred of ingredients: liquor. But the Riverwood Caf@eacute; knows how to do these babies justice. Its whities, mixed in tall glasses and possessing the punch of an Israeli gunship, are from a parallel universe. The staff won't reveal its secret recipe, and at $4.50 a pop, these drinks are a little steep for the peasant pocketbook. But they're good enough -- think of a vanilla shake powered by a nuclear reactor -- to make the Riverwood a destination drinking place.
