Zero Proof Clarified Milk Punch
Makes ~eight cocktails
• Zest + juice of one grapefruit
• Zest + juice of one lime
• .5 c. pineapple juice
• 1 T. El Guapo® Polynesian Kiss Bitters
• 2 c. whole milk

Many traditional recipes call for the milk to be heated prior to clarifying. I don’t find that step to be necessary.

In a non-reactive container, zest and juice lime and grapefruit. Add bitters and pineapple juice, stirring to combine. Add milk and allow to sit for one hour, curdled. Strain through a fine mesh sieve, discarding solids and refrigerating remaining mixture for at least an hour, being careful not to stir or disturb. Once chilled, strain mixture through a double coffee filter, allowing gravity to do the work.  Sometimes, a second pass through a clean double coffee filter is needed if the strained mixture is still cloudy as opposed to clear. Once properly strained, refrigerate in a sealed container for up to one week.
