That looks farking vile.

Isn't that the preferred drink of Jim DeGreeze, the Stainless Steel Rat?

Gin and condensed milk sounds vile too.

It looks like that Tequila Rose stuff. No thanks

Yeah.... I stopped reading there. This does not sound like anything I would ever put in my mouth for any reason.

A modern iteration might be comprised of a combination of gin, brandy, fresh milk, and condensed milk


WHO...WHY WOULD YOU DO THAT!!!

I like milk, I like alcohol, I just don't like them mixed.
 
2021-05-12 7:54:30 AM  
That sounds like a horrible waste of brandy.
 
2021-05-12 7:55:38 AM  
I prefer my gin with Kool-Aid.
 
2021-05-12 8:19:02 AM  
Yyyyyeah. No.
 
2021-05-12 8:25:44 AM  
I'm on the nope train for this as well. 'Vile' doesn't nearly describe the thought of gin and dairy mixed together.

Gin and milk?  Nope, just straight gin on my cornflakes.

and if you have wine with your Cap'n Crunch always remember:
Always pair with a white, unless you have Crunch Berries, then a dry red

This sounds like a version of the old school milk punch that's not clarified. The alcohol they used, however, were the brown ones like bourbon, rum, and brandy, which have flavor profiles more suitable for milk punch. Even with the clarified ones, clear spirits like gin and tequila don't make for the best ones.

Gin and milk used to be The hip cocktail in your swankier black music joints in the 40s and 50s. But it doesn't sound very attractive.

My college buddy called gin and milk "the right hook" b/c you'd jerk your head around as if you had been punched in the face when you tasted it. Brandy and milk is great, though. Think of almost every delicious milkshake recipe you know, and add a little brandy.
 
2021-05-12 1:12:15 PM  
eh, sounds akin to eggnog. but also what eyeq360 said about clear spirits.

Jazz musicians were big on mixing large amounts of grated nutmeg with milk for the high it gave them. Though too much would give you irregular heart rhythms, loose bowels, and bad hallucinations. Which also makes you wonder why people from the 1600s to 1800s were big on putting nutmeg on top of their alcoholic punches. Was it for the flavor, to show off, or for some synergystic effect with the alcohol? Or some combination of all three?

frangelico or amaretto in milk is a lovely bedtime drink, but yeah sometimes you need a little extra to jazz it up a bit. brandy or cognac work just fine.

given how the contents of my spice-cupboard could probably buy literally all of the land in medieval Europe, I'm definitely leaning towards the show-off part. but not necessarily discounting the other two reasons ;-)

That was Syrian Panther Sweat. Almost as good

ok, now I am concerned that people actually know the epithet of Fighting Jimmy diGriz.
 
2021-05-12 8:18:18 PM  
And we're not going to tell you how to make it pink because uhm, reasons. We actually don't know. We used some strawberry Quik. Don't tell anyone, okay?
