Recipe : Licor de leite – Liquor made with milk and chocolate

Version française

Make your own liquor… super easy !

I’ve learned how to make fruits liquor when I was in Coimbra, in Portugal thanks to Emilie, a portuguese lady from Mangualde. A lot of “aguardente” and a bit of maceration for a delicious alcoholic drink. And today, I’m sharing this milk and chocolate based recipe published by Sylvain from the blog un peu gay dans les coings (fr only) that I made and offered as a christmas present this year.

Yes, it’s in this little bottle on the right side of the picture here below. Milk and choclate for a super transparent result… How is that possible ? Answer below the picture !

Ingredients :

  • 250 ml whole milk
  • 250 ml 90 % alcohol
  • 1/2 lemon zest and juice
  • 30 g dark chocolate (70%)
  • 167 g sugar
  • 1 vanilla bean

Preparation :

  • Take zest and juice of lemon if not done yet.
  • Break chocolate into smaller pieces.
  • Combine all ingredients in a mason jar.
  • The lemon juice will curdle the milk, giving the mix a strange decomposed texture.
  • Leave it for 15 days shaking the jar everyday.
  • After maceration, filter liquor using a paper coffee filter (without stiring or scrubing with a spoon).

Et… voilà, Bonne dégustation !
