As soon as the potatoes are tender, drain them in a colander.
Place hot potatoes in mixing bowl and mix until smooth, about 1 minute.
Slowly add in milk/butter mixture and sour cream.
Turn up speed and beat for about 30 seconds, or until milk is absorbed. Gradually turn up speed and mix for 1 minute longer.
