But… milk in a cocktail drink? Really? Well, yes. And, well, why not? Mixing alcohol with dairy is nothing really new. Think Bailey’s Irish Cream, and cocktail classics like Brandy Alexander and White Russian, and the idea becomes self-explanatory.
And then, there’s piña colada which has coconut milk but is just as luscious and creamy as cocktails with dairy milk.
If we step aside from the world of cocktails and step inside momentarily in the world of desserts, dairy and booze have been partners for much, much longer. Think of the iconic Italian dessert tiramisu where cheese, egg and booze meld together beautifully.
But what does a cocktail drink with dairy milk or cream or coconut milk taste like and what does it feel like drinking it? Think of it as a liquid dessert. That’s the best description I can provide.
- ¼ cup milk
- ¼ cup creme de cacao
- ½ cup melon liqueur
- Pour all the ingredients into a shaker.
- Add ice.
- Shake for 15 seconds.
- Pour into shot glasses.
