Milk Maid

Milk Baid cocktail with tequila, cream of coconut, lime juice, simple syrup, and fresh cucumber

This drink by bartender Elizabeth Weiss from The Whistler in Chicago showed up on their “greatest hits” cocktail menu for their 10th anniversary bash, and one taste of its strange, ethereal flavor will show you why it was so popular.

There’s no actual milk in it– the bright white color comes from a healthy measure of cream of coconut. It needs to be the sweet, syrupy kind, not coconut milk or unsweetened coconut cream.

Ingredients

Instructions

Shake everything (including the cucumber) with ice, and strain into an ice-filled short glass. Garnish with a fresh slice of cucumber and a light sprinkle of salt.

Get the App

The Cocktail Party app puts this drink – and hundreds more – in your pocket, and tells you what you can make from the ingredients you have at home. It's the best $3.99 you'll ever spend on a drink.

This app ROCKS!!!

I've used a number of mix drink apps, and this one is by FAR the BEST! I've made a couple dozen drinks so far, and they're delicious. It suits my quality wants while (more importantly) suiting my inherent laziness. You put in what you have on hand, and it automatically lists all the drinks you can make! There's info on all the ingredients, which is pretty neat to learn some backstory. What I truly like is I can click an ingredient and it shows how many more drinks I can make. It's pretty fun picking up a new item and seeing 8 new drinks to try. There's a setting on the iPad that locks the app on so people can switch on the mixing app without letting anyone out of it, so I leave it by the bar and people can use it without worry of people snooping around. ;) The combination of all the drinks and this app that makes searching for, and making a drink, easy peezy lemon squeezey, and gives a real feeling of sophistication.
