I know one occasional drink is ok while nursing, but is it ok to have one several nights of the week? Say, 2-3 times? My weakness is White Russians.

You could have a drink every couple of hours, the only issue would be addiction.

I thought the alcohol is passed to the milk, although not full strength?

It is, but one drink metabolizes out of your system very quickly. Your milk would be completely clear within a few hours. Alcohol isn't like medication where the levels take longer to clear out the longer you take them.

My LC told me if I am fine to drive then I'm fine to nurse.

Safe to drive safe to nurse. That simple. 

Our European ancestors are laughing at the silly Americans worrying about ONE glass of wine or one beer. **grin** They would drink more than one and nurse away!
