- 1 1/2 ounces Benedictine
- 6 ounces milk (or enough to fill)
- Garnish: orange slice
- Garnish: cinnamon stick
- Pour Benedictine into a stemmed goblet or mug, add a few ice cubes, and top with cold milk. Stir well.
- Garnish with a slice of orange and a cinnamon stick. Serve and enjoy!
To serve the milk and honey warm, top the shot of Benedictine off with warm milk. Be sure to heat your milk slowly and gently (never letting it boil) while stirring constantly so it doesn’t curdle.
You can also dust the top of the drink with ground cinnamon and/or nutmeg if you prefer.
The milk and honey is a comforting drink and it’s not too strong, either. Whether you make it hot or cold, you can expect its alcohol content to be around 8 percent ABV (16 proof); the ice will dilute that just a little bit in the chilled version. That places this cocktail right between beer and wine.
