- 1/2 tsp of vanilla extract
How to make Morir Soñando
Before you start making the drink I just want to let you in on a very important tip.
It’s very important for the milk and orange juice to be cold. Otherwise when we mix them together the milk will curdle.
Therefore, I put the milk in a small pitcher and put it in the refrigerator for a few hours to chill.
Once the milk is very cold go ahead and juice enough oranges until you get two cups of orange juice.
I kept the oranges in the fridge so when I juiced them the juice was already chilled.
I used 9 oranges in total. I used a mesh strainer over a measuring cup to catch any seeds.
Go ahead and add the lime juice, 2 tbs of brown sugar and 1/2 tsp of vanilla extract to the orange juice and stir.
Take out the chilled milk and sweeten it with 2 tbs of brown sugar. Stir well.
Now slowly pour the orange juice mixture into the pitcher of milk while continuously stirring.
The drink is now ready to be served. It should be consumed immediately. It’s best served over ice.
This is one drink you need in your life this summer! I highly recommend you make it for a get together. Everyone will love it! Just remember it has to be consumed immediately after making.
