Tasty TikTok Cadbury Caramilk Cocktails May Be the Perfect Dessert

It’s strange to think of mixing dairy and booze, but where would The Dude be without his Caucasians? How would frat bros get bombed without dropping Irish cream and whiskey into Guinness? Okay, The Dude would still be stoned and Greek societies probably would still figure out a way to get hammered, but the truth remains: Milk and mash can be the best of friends.   

Take the new TikTok sensation, Caramilk cocktails, for example. TikTok user @emilyeast99 has now reached over 235,000 views, 26,000 likes, and 700 comments in revealing her scrumptious white chocolate concoctions.

Commenters are, for the most part, on board with the libation, with responses ranging from “we have to,” “ummm we needa try” and “medicine for Pooh.” With vodka-spiked melted caramel goodness, finished with grated Caramilk bar shavings on top, the creamy mixture looks like the ultimate dessert sloshing around a martini glass.

Other viewers are understandably a bit more hesitant to splurge on the sweet froth, with gut digestion, lactose intolerance, and possible aching heads in mind. “WHAT DID I DO WRONG” one lamenter asks. 

While concerns may be justified, the Cara-tini is certainly a funky way to entertain and impress guests. Cadbury Caramilk bars are not widely available in the United States. Founded in Canada in 1968, Caramilk is primarily a taste prevalent throughout England and former United Kingdom colonies like New Zealand and the Land of Maple Syrup.

If you’re willing to dive into honeyed new alcohol mixes, the Caramilk cocktail is pretty simple, according to @emilyeast99. First begin with two-thirds of a Cadbury Caramilk bar, 150ml cream, 75ml vodka, and 125ml creamy liqueur such as Baileys.

To make the drink, microwave the chocolate, stirring every 20 seconds until you have a smooth melt. Add cream to the melted chocolate. Fill a cocktail shaker with plenty of ice and pour in the chocolate mixture, vodka, and Baileys. Shake vigorously until ingredients are well combined and well chilled. Strain into a martini glass, and garnish with grated Caramilk flakes. Toast to the Dude (or whichever other mentor might enjoy the mix), sip, and enjoy.

While tequila is often labeled as the go-to liquor for shots and as the main ingredient in margaritas, it shouldn't be limited to just those uses, as there is so much more to this complex agave-based spirit.

Too many people have blurry memories of nights fueled by cheap tequila. And they remember the after effects of those budget tequilas that are often known as mixtos, tequilas that contain at least 51% blue agave, but also contain other ingredients that can lead to some rough mornings after a wild night out. Real, 100% blue agave tequilas, however, are one of the easiest drinking spirits and the best tequila can even have some of the most creative flavors without all that added sugar.

Coca-Cola used A.I. to create its next big drink because that’s ‘what the future tastes like’
We wonder if the future tastes like a dystopian hellscape

If you’re anything like us, you’re still a little wary of artificial intelligence (also known as AI). Maybe it’s because of movies like I, Robot or Terminator 2: Judgment Day, but we don’t think it’s so wrong to be at least a little cautious about artificial intelligence. The last thing we need is a robot uprising that eventually leads to the downfall of humankind, right? Well, clearly, Coca-Cola doesn’t share our fears of an impending AI-led apocalypse because it just launched a cola made with artificial intelligence. Well, co-created with AI.

It's called Coca-Cola Zero Sugar Y3000, and it was co-created by humans and artificial intelligence by “understanding how fans envision the future through emotions, aspirations, colors, flavors and more,” according to a Coca-Cola press release. It was created by Coca-Cola fans around the world as well as “insights gathered from artificial intelligence.” If that sounds kind of sci-fi, that’s because it really is. Robots and humans working in unison to create…cola? We’re sure that’s what people envisioned when they created artificial intelligence.
