It is a variation of the classic cocktail called White Russian, but with a twist by using tequila instead of vodka. The cocktail was first created in the 1970s and has been a popular after-dinner drink ever since. The combination of coffee liqueur, tequila, and cream creates a harmonious blend of flavors, with the smoky and slightly bitter notes of the coffee liqueur complementing the smooth and slightly spiced tequila. The addition of cream adds a velvety texture and a touch of sweetness to balance out the intensity of the other ingredients. Overall, the Dirty Mother is a delicious and subtly boozy cocktail that is perfect for sipping and savoring.
