Recipe: Smitten Kitten
I’ve never been a big milk drinker. Well, apparently that’s not completely true.
People tell me my parents almost needed to invest in a dairy farm to offset the costs of from truckloads of milk I drank as a toddler. Perhaps that’s an insight into the reason I don’t like milk now. Maybe I just overdid it then, like I did on Blue Illusions at age 18. Yep, two things I’ll probably never drink again.
Anyway, where was this going? Oh yes… So I’m not really a creamy cocktail kind of gal. I tend to go for clean, dry drinks myself.
However, in my mission to get in rhythm with this autumn cocktail thing, I’m branching out. And I don’t mind a bit of almond or soy, so I thought I’d try making a variation on the classic New Orleans cocktail, the Milk Punch, using the bottle of Canadian Maple Vodka my brother gave me as a gift plus a banana, because we all love a smoothie.
Have to say I was pretty impressed with the result!
