Can you mix alcohol and milk?
Yes you can mix alcohol with milk but not in all cases especially when the mix involves citrus. Milk is mainly water but it also contains hydrophobic fat (fat that can’t mix with water), this fat won’t mix with either alcohol or water. However if the amount of fat is small, let’s say 2% of the milk, it will mix pretty well with alcohol.
Anyways milk today has been homogenized (most of the fat has been removed) so it should mix well with alcohol.
