A sweet corn milk recipe in a cocktail with vodka, celebrating Nebraska!

 

 

Nebraska is known for its corn, so we figured why not embrace the stereotype and make a cocktail featuring corn! We haven’t run across many other cocktails that feature corn as the focal point, so this cocktail is truly an original! We started out by making a corn milk recipe to work with as the base.

This cocktail will remind you of sweet summer corn on the cob, the black pepper, salt and cayenne bringing a hint of the classic seasonings. The fresh sweet corn milk recipe gives this a silky mouth feel and a fresh sweetness that makes the sweet corn cocktail taste just like a fresh picked ear of corn.

To add a bit more Nebraska flavor, we used Cut Spike Vodka, a locally distilled vodka from Nebraska that uses water from the Sandhills, one of the most picturesque and unspoiled parts of Nebraska.
