Mixology Monday: Milk Punch

While I don’t like my martinis with milk, a drink on the rocks is just fine. My all time favorite cocktail is a good white russian (skim milk, please, and Starbucks Coffee liqueur). So for my first Mixology Monday I chose to make Milk Punch — New Orleans’ requisite pre-noon sip. Inspired by a recipe found in Cocktail: The Drinks Bible for the 21st Century (Viking, 1998), I made my Milk Punch with vanilla rum and skim milk, of course. Disclaimer: Instead of bourbon, I also used Jack Daniel’s — it was all that was available in mini bottles at my corner liquor store, and it was too hot to walk to the other one to find Maker’s Mark. Despite this, I still think it turned out pretty good.

Milk Punch
2 oz. Jack Daniel’s
2 oz. skim milk
1 tsp. simple syrup
Splash of Brinley Gold Vanilla Rum

Combine liquids in a shaker with ice. Strain into a highball glass over ice. Dust with nutmeg.
