Bad news, lactose intolerants… both of today’s recipes use dairy products. In “Mr. Freeze” you can use lactose-free cream, but there’s no substitute for evaporated milk in “Jack Frost”.
-4 parts vodka
-4 parts lime juice
-6 parts simple syrup
-8 parts cream
-1 (or 2) part Blue Curacao
Shake ingredients with ice and strain into chilled highball glass filled with crushed ice. Serve with a straw, unless you like milk whiskers.
This drink is very straightforward: cool and sweet cream, balanced with lime juice. If you’re worried that the lime juice will “separate” the cream, add the juice last, just before shaking. I guess it’s possible to transform cream into disgusting lumps, but I doubt it: I ruined couple of earlier versions, they had too much lime compared to cream… separation shouldn’t happen with this ratio.
If you’re willing to risk milk whiskers, serve the drink from margarita glass…
Dip the rim of the glass into blue curacao and sugar before preparing the rest of the drink. Powdered sugar gives even more “arctic” look.
…And that’s also the way you start making “Jack Frost”. Recipe is not my own invention, but I thought to let you know.
Prepare margarita glass, as above.
-1 part coconut milk
-1 part evaporated milk
-1 part blanco tequila
-Blue Curacao for colour
Put the ingredients into blender, mix with ice and strain into margarita glass filled with crushed ice. If you don’t have a blender, whip the milks together vigorously, add tequila and shake with ice.
This is a nice drink: cool cream with a tequila sting. You can substitute vodka for tequila in “Mr. Freeze”, but it won’t be as effective.
