Klingon word: nIm
Part of speech: noun
Definition: milk
Source: KGT (221 KE, 250 EK)

(KGT 95):  Animal blood ({'Iw}) is found primarily in alcoholic beverages, but the milk ({nIm}) of some creatures (such as the {targh} [targ]) is combined with other ingredients to form drinks of rather complex flavor, though it is seldom consumed by itself.

 (KGT 83):  In fact, {vut} ["prepare food"] can also be used in reference to making a beverage, whether simply mixing ingredients together (such a putting cream in coffee)...

(KGT 96):  Eventually, a new fashion developed--adding cream to the *raktaj*--and with this innovation came yet another name, raktajino, modeled after the name of another popular coffee drink, cappuccino. Raktajino is now served hot or iced, with or without extra cream, and with or without the rind of some fruit to add even more flavor.
