Happy New Year! Being New Year’s Day we thought we’d need a little jump start, so we choose this simple drink of Benedictine and milk. The cognac based liqueur was originally created as pick me up for tired Benedictine Monks. It’s closely guarded recipe of 27 herbs and spices is also very soothing, even more so when combined with Milk. Served hot or cold, I think we could all use a little Milk & Honey today.
- 1 ½ oz ( ~50 ml) Benedictine
Cold: Pour Benedictine into a mug, add ice, and top up with cold milk. Garnish with a slice of orange and cinnamon
Hot: Top Benedictine off with hot milk.
