Brown Cow Cocktail

If you are looking for an easy drink to make that tastes good too, look no further than the classic Brown Cow Cocktail.

When I was growing up, one of my mom’s favorite drinks was a Brown Cow.  She would always tell me that she was drinking chocolate milk but when I was older I found out the truth. 

Because it is so sweet and tasty, the Brown Cow is a drink that can be considered, and enjoyed as a dessert drink or simple evening cocktail.

The classic Brown Cow Cocktail is an easy to make dessert drink that only requires two ingredients. You can make it in minutes and it tastes great!
