Ok, so brownies and port aren’t really your thing and you’re craving the traditional plate of cookies with milk. Except… you’re a grownup now, so why have just plain milk? Here’s how to upgrade your moo for 21-and-up enjoyment.

The Basics

Getting “adult” on your glass of milk doesn’t have to be hard. The simple method: Pour milk and any singular flavored liqueur into a glass, stir, and enjoy. Great pairings include Amaretto, Chambord, vanilla vodka, and strawberry vodka. Add ice if you like it, or don’t. You can use any kind of milk you want, but I prefer whole milk for best flavor.

If you’re feeling fancy or want to impress someone, try any of the cocktails below — or feel free to experiment and make your own! You can also toss any of these recipes into the blender with a few cups of ice and blend away for a frozen beverage. Top with whipped cream and enjoy!

Oh, and don’t forget the cookies.

Add Creme de Cacao and Kamora to a large mug. Heat milk just until tiny bubbles begin to form. Immediately remove milk from heat and pour into mug. Use a whisk to briskly combine milk and alcohol until light foam forms. Dust with cocoa powder and serve.
