Sweet Milk Liqueur – The Reckoning
You know what’s really good? Sweet Milk Liqueur! Holy moly, this will be a regular project around here.
So, this past Wednesday marked 10 days since I made all my vodka concoctions (vodkoctions?), so it was time to start filtering. And then it was time to keep filtering. And then it was time to filter some more. Anyway, a brewing grain bag, a t-shirt, and about a dozen coffee filters later… I still had a rather murky liquid. I was done for the night.
Thursday, I ran it through coffee filters twice more, and twice again this evening. I finally had an appealing-looking, crystal-clear liquid (mine is darker than the one in the inspiration article because I used raw brown cane sugar).
It has a faint hint of ice cream on the nose (add a stick of vanilla next time?) and a rich creamy mouthfeel. It’s syrupy and sweet, with a slight bite on the finish from the lemon that keeps it from being too cloying.
I have so many things I want to try with this recipe in the future, I can’t STAND it. There will definitely be more to come. As soon as I figure out a better filtration system. That was a pain in the butt, frankly.
Thanks again to Millie for the link.
