milk tartMelk Tert is the Afrikaans name of a South African custard pie, a dessert typically served at a braai (barbecue) or at tea time — this is not that!

Milk Tart is 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 are the hardest things 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).
Optional extras are a teaspoon of vanilla essence and/or a shot of espresso.
Pour can of condensed milk into half a bottle of vodka.
Shake up well and serve over ice.
