  • 1 1/2 ounces Benedictine
  • 6 ounces milk (or enough to fill)
  • Garnish: orange slice
  • Garnish: cinnamon stick


  1. Pour Benedictine into a stemmed goblet or mug, add a few ice cubes, and top with cold milk. Stir well.
  2. 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.
