I've found my perfect breakfast beverage. Yay! And it doesn't even leave me with a hangover.

It's only 9 am. Isn't that too early to be drinking?

Not this drink. This is healthy - it's a mix of milk and vodka made from whey.

Have they run out of potatoes? Has the barley harvest failed? Why make vodka from milk?

A Dorset farmer called Jason Barber had this bright idea. He decided to check out if his 250 cows could do what the yaks of Tuva, a Siberian town, can do - deliver milk that can be turned into vodka. Turns out they could.

So Barber pulled off the perfect mix for Roger Sterling of Mad Men, eh? He wouldn't need to spike his milk with vodka anymore.

Black Cow Vodka doesn't have to wait for Sterling's approval, it is already a hit with A-listers. Daniel Craig and Liz Hurley are guzzling the stuff.

So how exactly does one turn doodh ka doodh and pani ka vodka?

Well, the milk is separated into curds - used to make cheese - and whey which is fermented into a beer using a special yeast. It took Barber three years to come up with a winning formula.

Move over White Russian. I am going Black Cow too!
