Why Ron Burgundy let you down.

“Milk was a bad choice.”

A man of many wise words, but when it comes to a quality libation milk is constantly looked down upon. Why? There are some reasons, some poor choices such as the ‘cement mixer’ – a shot created in the seventh circle of hell in which a combination of baileys and lime juice curdles in ones mouth to highlight the fact you’ve either lost a dare or been a pawn in a cruel joke. Or you’ve asked the bartender for a shot after they’ve cut you off and you won’t take no for an answer.

Alcohol and dairy can be legendairy (sorry, not sorry). With the spiked milkshakes popping up everywhere, people are starting to come to discover this Bonnie & Clyde of a duo and discover the magic. However I understand dairy still needs a bit of promotion, so here’s a list of some quality reasons why you should introduce milk into your drinking schedule and some fine institutions where you can try it out for yourselves:

  1. Unlike most mixers, milk is high in protein, calcium and all those other goodies as well as being lower in sugar. It’s the healthy persons choice, really. #cleaneating
  2. It’s delicious.
  3. Half the time it comes with ice-cream or a dessert like garnish.
  4. Refer to the above.
