We’ve already introduced our other flavor of the month. And so far it’s a hit with our members! We started this flavor with none other than nature’s true candy - Maple Syrup. And then topped it off with donuts for an even sweeter touch!

Welcome March - the time to tap those trees for their magnificent maple sap so we can make our annual maple pint. This year it’s a Maple Glazed Donut pint with help from our friends at Dough bakery in Brooklyn. Inspired by the good old days - the weekly family trip to the old donut shop in town, where you could always count on a maple glazed - this pint is best paired a cup of Joe. A scoop for breakfast is encouraged!

Step 4:Packing the pints. Want to know the way to keep your pints (any pints) from freezer burn? From that nasty ice crystallization after each serving. (Yeah we hate that too.) A parchment lining. We include one on every pint and recommend to our members to save it, and place it on top of the ‘scream when storing it in the freezer after each serving.

Don’t let the name trick you, this pint is packed full of warm feelings (despite the fact it’s actually frozen). We credit the rum.

If you can’t get your hands on this flavor, then check out Angel’s Share in the East Village - our choice spot for the Dark and Stormy drink.

Our rum hails from our friends at Van Brunt Stillhouse. We haven’t rummed it up since the summer of 2012 (Rumble in Brighton anyone? How about Dirty Banana? Ahhh, summer.) so we were due. Due North, that is, which is our VBS rum of choice.

Step 1:The “Stormy” part of Dark and Stormy comes from the ginger. Of course our is fresh from the Greenmarkets of NYC. And the “Dark” Comes from our rum, which we infused right into the ginger.

We’re gearing up for another week of deliveries! The forecast calls for snow, but our members are calling for more ‘scream. Despite our stormy relationship, we decided to pay tribute to the dark winter weather this month with our first flavor.

It was a dark and stormy night… That iconic phrase has pretty much described every delivery night of the new year, since Old Man Winter has dumped over 4 feet of snowy delight on our city since January. On dark and stormy nights, we often find solace in a cup. Taking inspiration - we’ve turned that cup into a pint. With a name fit for the weather but a taste bright and spicy, here’s the MilkMade version of the “Dark and Stormy”.

Step 4: At first we were worried because the hue of the ‘scream looked a little grey. Now, mind you - we don’t add any coloring to any of our ‘screams. Our mint is not your bright green mint - it’s slightly tinted green. Our strawberry is naturally bright pink. Or deep red. Or light pink - depending on the berries included. Well same goes for our cherry ‘scream. Luckily it rounded out into a nice lavender/purple/pink color.

Step 2: What do you prefer - dark chocolate or white chocolate? 
We couldn’t decide - we we threw in both! Dark chocolate chops from Mast Brothers, and a house-made white chocolate ganache.

Our other flavor of the month is a remix of a timeless candy - the cherry cordial. We decided to recreate it in ice cream form, and here’s how

You know you’re loved when you’re given a box of cherry cordials on Valentine’s Day. But how about a pint of cherry cordial ice cream? True romance. We’ve recreated the classic cordial in ice cream form, with an Amarena cherry ice cream base with chipped Valrhona white chocolate and Mast Brothers dark chocolate. The cherries are naturally sour, the dark chocolate a bit bitter, and the white chocolate is super sweet, making this one intense and complex pint, just like love itself.

Step 5: We reduce the wine and add it to our house-made caramel swirl. It creates this really complex delicious caramel sauce - sweet and salty caramel taste, but also a blueberry, peppery, and smoky taste from the wine notes. Check the step by step below to see the magic:
