Chocolate milk for adults: Delicious! Photo

Love chocolate? Like vodka? Need a delightful alcoholic gift?
Take a look at Adult Chocolate Milk, a liquid confection made from real cream. While the company positions it as an alcohol-infused chocolate milk, to us it’s more of a creamy chocolate milkshake. Either way, no complaints.
Adult Chocolate Milk may be one of the first products manufactured as the result of a Facebook post.
A couple of years ago, one of the company’s founders updated her Facebook page to say, “Tracy is enjoying some Adult Chocolate Milk.” Friends began inquiring about the recipe, or where they could buy a bottle. Another friend, with experience in management and manufacturing, read the post and became Tracy’s business partner.
Now, we can all enjoy some Adult Chocolate Milk! It’s only 40 proof, half the alcohol of conventional spirits. (Straight spirits are at least 80 proof, or 40% alcohol.)
We drink it from a brandy snifter. The nose is a combination of cream and vodka with a hint of cocoa. On the palate it’s a creamy spiked milkshake, subtly flavored with chocolate. It’s very smooth, to the point where you’ll need to hide it from kids.
The company won’t disclose all of the ingredients, but we imagine that an infusion of chocolate liqueur creates the subtle, chocolaty flavor. Whatever the secret, it tastes great: comfort food in a glass.
We love sipping Adult Chocolate Milk straight, but you can also use it as a base for cocktails, such as:
Chocomintini: Add creme de menthe, peppermint schnapps and vanilla vodka.
Chocolate Dipped Raspberry: Add Chambord, rum and vanilla vodka.
Naughty Night Cap: amaretto or coffee liqueur and a splash of grenadine.
White Delight: amaretto and heavy cream with a nutmeg garnish.
