The Milk and Honey is an extremely simple and delicious drink that has quite the tradition, despite ever seeing mainstream success. It is a soothing winter drink that never reached the popularity of egg nog or a hot buttered rum, but still has its drinkers regardless.

It is one of the few drinks that incorporates Benedictine, an herbal liqueur that was developed by monks for centuries. To this day, the exact recipe of the liqueur is a guarded secret. The drink also keeps with the religious theme, as both milk and honey are constantly referenced in the Bible, and are considered “symbols of all things good” by many interpreters.

Ingredients:

  • 1 ½ ounces of Benedictine
  • 6 ounces of milk
  • Ice (optional)

Preparation:

  1. Pour the Benedictine into a mug, add ice, and top with cold milk.

Equipment:

  • Mug

If one is choosing to enjoy a hot Milk and Honey, it is of the utmost importance to heat the milk slowly, so that it does not end up curdling. The most common garnishes are a slice of orange and cinnamon, and some consider these mandatory ingredients more than garnishes, although there are variations of the drink, similar to eggnog or hot buttered rum. Of course, the hot version of the drink is more common during the winter, although the drink has maintained popularity more in Europe than in other regions. Interestingly enough, the drink shares the same name as a world-famous bar in London, that has won various awards. Established in 2000, the bar is extremely exclusive, and requires a private membership, which is a rare situation for most bars worldwide. In addition, the bar even has “house rules”, that require a certain behavior while inside of the bar, and even while leaving, for example. The drink is noted for how easy it is to make, and remains a very simple and delicious option, whether you are searching for a cozy winter drink, or a refreshing cool afternoon drink.
