Navy Moose Milk

Over the last couple of days this post has had quite a few views, 717 views yesterday and 429 today!!!!!  I’m absolutely thrilled!!  I’m usually feeling pretty good if I get 150 – 200 views in a day but this is incredible, so I thought I’d repost it and after all ’tis the season! 😀 😀

And since I posted this my “new friend” Shelley has become someone I talk to almost everyday. 😀 😀

I originally posted this on December 20, 2013

My new friend Shelley served for the Canadian Forces and shared the “secret” of Navy Moose Milk with me.  My ex- father in law was also in the Canadian Forces and my ex hubby is an army man.  Wonder why they never shared this secret before hmmm???

She told me that when moose milk was made on ship, it was made in one of those giant, metal, industrial blenders. They needed to make enough for 200!

Navy Moose milk is a tradition of the Canadian Navy. It was basically the last minute findings found in the cooks galley to mix with the leftover alcohol. Mixed in a big batch in the big mixing bowl. Though other branches of the military service (army, air force, RCMP) claims to have the original or best, don’t be fooled! Navy comes out on top!

Navy Moose Milk

INGREDIENTS
1.14 litre dark rum
1.14 litre Kahlua
1.14 litre vodka
4 litres of vanilla soft scoop ice cream
4 litres of partly skimmed milk

DIRECTIONS
Mix gently until frothy with still a few ice cream lumps. Liberally sprinkle nutmeg over top. Enjoy and give vehicle keys to a party staying sober.

Army Moose Milk:
40oz Lambs Dark Rum
40oz Kahlua
40oz Vodka
4L Vanilla Ice Cream (the good creamy expensive kind)
4L eggnog

Mix all together, breaking up the ice cream a bit. Sprinkle nutmeg on top if you so desire. Stir occasionally as the ice cream starts to melt. Enjoy!
OR:
1.14 lt of Dark Rum
1.14 lt of Kahlua
1.14 lt of Vodka
4 lt of vanilla soft scoop ice cream
4 lt of partly skimmed milk

Mix gently until frothy, leaving a few ice cream chunks.
Liberally sprinkle with Nutmeg on top.

Canadian Air Force:
Messes traditionally serve “Moose Milk” at their New Year’s Levees. This alcoholic concoction contains no moose milk whatsoever. The recipes vary, but tend to include eggs, sugar, maple syrup, cream, or ice cream, and some combination of rye whiskey and rum.
The Official (well…sort of) Recipe for RCAF Moose Milk

Anyways, here’s another Canadian recipe for Moose Milk – metric of course:
*    1 l rum
*    1 l Kahlua
*    1 l vodka
*    3 l vanilla ice cream (softened)
*    3 l 2% milk (just to be diet conscious)
*    chocolate pieces (break up a dark chocolate candy bar or two- this is the added secret moose poop garnish)
*    nutmeg
Stir together, leave in some lumps. Sprinkle nutmeg on top.
You may need to play with the proportions to suit your palate. It does make a lot, but that usually doesn’t seem to be a problem, somehow it gets used up. Can leave you with a bit of a hangover, probably all that milk. Or maybe it’s heading out for spicy food after – been there, done that.

MOOSE MILK Warning – Within anything from a few minutes to an hour after imbibing on Moose Milk you will begin to feel the benefits. Initially a mild feeling of euphoria will overtake you as your metabolism increases its efficiency. Within a very short period thereafter, you will note various other benefits including a massive increase in confidence, pride, intelligence and magnetism to the opposite sex. There are only two possible negative side effects and they can be avoided by following these warnings:
1. If you feel the urge to paw the ground and run head long into a member of the opposite sex? Resist.
2. Despite the strong cravings you will undoubtedly feel for more moose milk, under no circumstances should you attempt to milk a moose on your own; this job is strictly for the professionals.

Number One Hundred and Thirty and the Bottle of Amarula!

This is my 130th post. WooHoo!!  I am celebrating with a glass of Amarula on the rocks.

This is better than Kahlua or Bailey’s in my world

The back of the bottle reads:

Amarula Cream is a pure blend of Nature’s fresh cream and the mysterious taste of the wild Marula fruit.  Africa‘s majestic Elephants walk for miles to feast on the sun ripened Marula fruit which is indigenous to the regions vast subequarorial plains.

The hand-picked Marula fruit is fermented distilled and matured for tow years in French Oak before being blended with the finest fresh cream.  Internationally award-winning Marula cream is best enjoyed neat or on ice.
