Warmed Caramel Milk
by Betty Bee
Warm, creamy caramel milk may be served straight-up or fortify it with some whiskey, brandy or even a splash of rum for a dreamy bedtime drink.
Enough for two
400 ml milk, whole or skimmed
50 g sugar
2 tablespoons water
Whiskey, brandy or rum to tate (optonal)
Place the sugar and water in a pan and stir to dissolve the sugar. Place the pan over a gentle heat, stirring all the time.
Meanwhile in a separate pan warm the milk gently.
When the sugar and water have turned into a golden caramel, stir in a small amount of the milk, be careful as the mixture may spit. Continue stirring in the milk until fully combined.
Pour in the alcohol if using and serve.
