“How do you make a Black Russian?"/"Get the BBC to remake Dr. Zhivago.”

A cocktail riddle is:

Q: How do you make a Black Russian?
A: Get the BBC to remake Dr. Zhivago.


A “Black Russian” is a cocktail. Dr. Zhivago (1965) is a classic film, set in Russia in World War I. The lead characters are all white, but the joke is that the politically correct BBC will cast black actors in a remake. The joke was posted on Sickipedia on March 6, 2022.


Wikipedia: Black Russian
The Black Russian is a cocktail of vodka and coffee liqueur. It contains 50 ml vodka and 20 ml coffee liqueur, per IBA specified ingredients.

The drink is made by pouring the vodka and coffee liqueur over ice cubes or cracked ice in an old-fashioned glass and stirring. The Black Russian is often garnished with a lemon slice and a Luxardo maraschino cherry on a stick.
