Is it true that food colouring will not dye milk until it is stirred in?

I once read that if you put a few drops of food colouring in milk it sinks to the bottom and stays there until the milk is moved (then it spreads through the milk to make it another colour). It’s never worked for me, is that because it was false or is there a way to make it work?
