Can I substitute Milk with a non-dairy alternative in the Big Boy cocktail?

Yes, you can substitute milk with a non-dairy alternative like almond milk, soy milk, or oat milk in the Big Boy cocktail. These alternatives may slightly alter the taste and texture but will make the drink suitable for vegans or those with lactose intolerance.

PREPARATION_TECHNIQUES

Is the Big Boy cocktail shaken or stirred?

The Big Boy cocktail is stirred, not shaken. Stirring gently combines the ingredients without diluting the drink as much as shaking would, maintaining the rich textures of the creamy and liqueur components.
