milk tartMelk Tert is the Afrikaans name of a South African custard pie, a dessert typically served at a braai (barbeque) or at tea time.

Milk Tart, on the other hand, is not simply the English translation of that dessert. It’s a road-side concoction bikers brew up from ingredients obtained from almost any convenience and liquor store in sub-saharan Africa. Every year since his passing I shake up a fresh batch of my brother Alf’s recipe for Milk Tart, take a hit and sleep soundly on fond memories of our time together.

This is an alcohol based drink reminiscent of Bailey’s Irish Cream, only younger, stronger and tastes like more. Sublime on the rocks (which is the hardest thing to find on the road — ice, not rocks) …

Recipe, Ingredients & Method:
One medium can of sweetened condensed milk (approx 300g).
Half a bottle of vodka (375ml).
Pour can of condensed milk into half a bottle of vodka.
Shake up well and pour over ice.
