Bourbon Milk Punch

Last Updated on

If you’ve never had a milk punch I urge you to make one, it’s an absolutely awesome dessert cocktail made with Bourbon or brandy, milk and/or cream, vanilla extract, sugar and a smidgen of nutmeg. It may look like a winter drink but it’s actually great any time of the year!

Apparently the milk punch has been around for centuries but it is new to me, I came across it for the first time a few weeks ago. Being a big cream and (more recently) also Bourbon fan I had to try it and, unsurprisingly, I loved it. It’s creamy, sweet, boozy and thanks to the ice it’s quite refreshing at the same time.

      Thank you, Debs! I love the everyday, always-in-the-house ingredient list too, when I came across the recipe I thought “I can make that right now!”

      Thank you, Angela! It is very similar to a Brandy Alexander, some recipes are actually identical but I’ve also seen a few that add creme de cacao to the Alexander. (Need to get a bottle of creme de cacao, I’ve never had it but sounds delicious). :)
