Non-alcoholic additives, juices & mixers


Use of milk in drinks is in preference to heavier dairy products such as cream or half & half. As such, it occasionally appears in drinks which are not necessarily dessert drinks, though it is still common in them. Milk historically was also used for as a clarifying agent (an additive that clears cloudy liquid by bonding to particulate matter in the solution/suspension and causing said matter to fall to the bottom from the extra weight) of punches, spirits, liqueurs, and other alcohol preparations.




Generally available.
