Breast Milk White RussiansJump to Recipe
A lot of soon-to-be parents are worried about breast feeding. Particularly, moms tend to be worried that they will have supply issues.
But, a somewhat lesser known problem is an over supply of breast milk. If you have a little guy like Theo was, he generally didn’t need that much milk throughout the day and Betsy ended up being a superstar and was producing enough for our dude and managed to build up a huge supply.
Like, our freezer is jam-packed full of tiny little milk packets and we just have no more room!
So, the options for us were either A) force feed our kid or B) come up with another use for breast milk.
Enter… the breast milk cocktail!
Use surplus breast milk to make a delicious white russian cocktail!
1) Steal two ounces of breast milk from baby supply.
2) Mix with vodka and pour into cocktail glass with lots of ice.
3) Pour Kahlua over the top and enjoy!
Why Use Breast Milk?
Breast milk is prized stuff, for sure. Some might say that using it for a cocktail is wasteful, but I say it’s better than letting it spoil and tossing it.
Plus, it’s actually really good. Imagine the creamiest whole milk in the world, plus nine months of work!
People frequently use prized ingredients in cocktails. Gold-flaked liquors exist after all. So why not use the most prized milk to make a delicious White Russian!
If you’ve ever made a good white russian, you know the ratio! Usually it’s about 1 part vodka to 1 part cream (or milk) and then a 1/2 part of Kahlua on top as a finish to the drink.
It might sound crazy, but is it really that much crazier than drinking milk from a cow?!
This stuff is the good stuff and you’re missing out if you aren’t trying it!
PS. Don’t steal breast milk from babies! They need it more than you do, you lush.
