So tonight I have had, in rapid succession, the following things to drink:

1. Water
2. Hot jasmine green tea
3. Red wine (tempranillo-garnacha blend from Spain)
4. Milk
5. Egg yolk
6. Orange juice
7. Hot chocolate

I know that egg yolk isn’t a proper drink but it is a liquid, so that counts, right? I mean you could drink it if you had to.

Ummm, I might argue that an egg yolk isn’t a liquid. I’ll have to think about that, though.

Also, orange juice followed by hot chocolate is just gross.

To completley nerd out on Heather and Kevin:

Egg yolk is an emulsion of liquified fat and a SOLUTION (liquid) of dissolved albumin protein in water, and thus is a combination of liquids, per the definition of emulsion (and suspension for that matter):

“A suspension of small globules of one liquid in a second liquid with which the first will not mix”

It is a liquid and nary a solid UNLESS you precipitate the albumin and freeze the fat. Water would remain in either case.
