immortal milk

noun; compounding
milk that is pasteurized so that the carton is shelf stable and needs no refrigeration
 
the adjective immortal, from im- ‘not’ mortal ‘dying’ is used by metaphor to capture the idea that this milk does not reach the end of its lifespan by spoiling if left out. It can last for about a year without refrigeration, which compared to the four hours regular milk can sit out seems like an eternity.
Etymology : compound of adjective “immortal” + noun “milk”
