If you’re one of the lucky folks blessed with the ability to drink milk into adulthood, you owe it to your magical genes to mix yourself a Rum Cow. Drink one for those of us who must suffer to sip such a delicious glass of milk, spirits, and lovely holiday spices!
You can use any rum you like – we’re partial to spiced rum. You can even serve it as a hot drink, if you like.
- 1½ parts Spiced rum or Aged rum or Dark rum or Demerara rum or Light rum
- 6 parts Milk
- 1 tbsp Simple syrup or Brown sugar syrup
- 2 dashes Aromatic bitters or Chocolate bitters
- 1 dash Vanilla extract
For a cold Rum Cow, shake all ingredients with ice and strain into an ice-filled short glass.
If you’d prefer a hot Rum Cow, start by adding everything but the milk to a heat-proof mug. Heat up the milk in a saucepan, stirring frequently. Pour the warmed milk into the mug with the other ingredients and stir.
Garnish either a cold or hot Rum Cow with a dusting of freshly-grated nutmeg.
