In brief: Good question

Its the type and timing of protein that matter since the smooth delivery of the parkinsons medication may be at risk resulting in dose failures.
Unfortunately as you may have discovered the commercial products (drinks) that are sold tend to taste awful. I'd just eat what you like and not wory about it so long as your serum albumen is in the normal range. Muscle milk has 18 gm 1/day helps.
