Melktertjies - A Shot of Heaven

Today the pretty Laura Jane from the beautiful blog Whimsy is Forever took the time to share this very cute, ahem and tasty recipe on my blog. She's a chemistry lady after all, oh yes, she recently graduated with her Masters Degree in Chemistry! You can read about her graduation here and while you're there read the 100 Things about her. Talk about beauty & brains. ;) Thank you so much Laura Jane, I'm so delighted to have you here. Here's her post. 

Melktertjies are a South African shooter that are based on the traditional South African Melktert (a milky/custardy tart that’s topped with cinnamon). These shooters are incredibly easy to whip up, and are a great way to end a dinner party or a braai – it’s dessert in a glass, but with a serious kick!

All you need is three ingredients.
  1.  A tin of sweetened condensed milk
  2.  100 ml vodka 
  3.  Some cinnamon

In a jug, mix together the tin of condensed milk with 100 ml of vodka until the mixture is smooth and well blended. Pour into shot glasses and top with a pinch of cinnamon!

Enjoy! ;)
