The Canadian military claims a variation of this wintery drink as their own, but for me it’s a memory of a trail ride outside of Tucson, Arizona with the Maloney family, men only, save your protests as the women on the family were very excited to see all the men go for 3 days and this is a verified fact.
Early in the morning on this pampered trail ride, gallons of moose milk would be served to get the urban riders ready to hit the trails with their horses. This drink would get even the most nervous of horse riders ready to jump on the saddle if not fall off. (The original drink calls for heavy cream, ice-cream and so on, but on the trail ride it was a barely cold drink served in a copper cup with 2% milk.)
- 1/2 cup each of dark rum, Kahlua, Vodka, and Baily’s
- 3 cups 2% milk
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- Nutmeg, freshly grated
- Whisk together the liquids and cinnamon, and whisk it like an intruder on your property… then pour in copper cups, grate nutmeg on top and serve… usually fireside on a chilly day.
