Morir soñando is a drink that can be translated as to die dreaming. This popular drink is from the Dominican Republic. It’s made with milk, orange juice and ice. One of the most amazing things on my Taste the World challenge is trying new recipes like this one. Without the challenge is unlikely I would have discovered this drink from more than 4,200 miles away. From what I found online, the recipe originated from the Dominican Republic and is still drunk mainly there.
The most important part of this recipe is to keep the milk as cold as possible. Keep that in mind and the drink will turn out amazing. I loved it and my husband loved it too. It has a lovely silky texture. I made a slight modification, by switching the sugar with golden syrup. I did this so the sweetener will dissolve faster. You can use cane sugar or any kind of sugar you want, make sure the sugar is dissolved in the milk.
Ingredients for 2 glasses of Morir soñando:
– 400ml evaporated milk
– 200ml orange juice
– 40ml golden syrup
– 4 ice cubes
– slices of oranges for decor
Put the evaporated milk in the fridge for a few hours or overnight. I left it overnight because I planned to make the drink the following day. To make the drink, stir in the golden syrup in the milk, until incorporated. Crush the ice cubes and toss them in the milk. Put them back in fridge.
Prepare the orange slices and the glasses. Then, take the evaporated milk and the orange juice and combine them. Stir with a spoon. Pour the drink in the glasses and Morir Sonando is now ready to be served.
It is a very easy drink to make and is very different. If you follow these easy steps, the drink will turn out amazing, so do try it.
