Popcorn Milk Punch
A couple of years ago I split a Snow Ball and pretty much decided right there and then never to mix another cocktail with milk. Since then I have - successfully - mixed several.
The Buttermilk Margarita and the Flutterby Lassies are both favorites and I do love a good Brandy Milk Punch for brunch.
I've also tried to update the Danish tradition for drinking aquavit and milk in the morning with my own Java & Brioche.
And then I saw a recipe for a popcorn milkshake and just knew I had to work with that idea.
Right away I changed the recipe for the popcorn milk thinking it sounded like way too much sugar and popcorn for my taste.
So I ended up cooking 3 cups of freshly popped popcorn in 500 ml organic whole milk with 6 tablespoons sugar and 0,5 tablespoon salt.
When I blended and strained the mixture after 24 hours in the fridge I thought it was a little overpowering, but I went ahead and mixed 60 ml bourbon with 120 ml popcorn milkshake.
It was way too sweet, but mixing 60 ml bourbon with 60 ml popcorn milkshake and 60 ml whole milk made a very tasty drink.
I do think however it's more of a dessert than a cocktail.
