In Vietnam, where the weather can be rather scorching, locals like to cool off with a refreshing limeade-like blend of sweetened condensed milk and lime juice. Try Editorial Director J.M. Hirsch’s version, The Saigon Sipper, a shaken vodka cocktail served over crushed ice that blends together fresh lime juice, sweetened condensed milk and bitters to create the richest, creamiest, sweetest and sharpest frozen slushy drink you’ll be reaching for all summer long. Cheers!
