I agree with previous reviewers - yummy! Used whole milk and Absolut vodka. The milk did take quite a bit of extra time to reduce, didn't want to push it by boiling, so I stood patiently nearby. When it was cool, I ran it through a strainer to get the last of the skin off (maybe due to whole milk?). Thanks, Kim127! Made for Went to Market tag.
I reduced this recipe down to one serving. I used citrus flavored vodka to soak the zest in for added flavor. The milk did not reduce by much, so I went with half 2% and half sweetened condensed milk. This drink is quite delicious and like the title states, is nice and creamy. This drink is a nice comfy soother just before bedtime.
