If you're looking for a sweet and creamy drink that can be enjoyed as a dessert cocktail; well look no further. I give you the brandy milk punch.

What Is Milk Punch?

Milk punch is a cocktail that typically consists of brandy, rum, or whiskey, mixed with sugar, spices, lemon or lime juice, and milk. The ingredients are mixed together and then strained, resulting in a creamy, smooth drink with a rich flavor. Some variations of milk punch may also include nutmeg or other spices, vanilla extract, or even coffee.

Milk punch, or brandy milk punch, is often served in a punch bowl or in individual glasses and can be garnished with a sprinkle of nutmeg or a lemon or lime twist. It is a sweet and creamy drink that is often enjoyed after a meal or as a dessert cocktail.

Short History of Milk Punch

Milk punch has a long history, with roots that can be traced back to England in the 1600s. It was originally seen as a way to use up leftover milk, but has since become a popular cocktail that is enjoyed year-round, especially during the holidays.

  • To turn this into a quick brandy eggnog by the glass, add a small egg and substitute heavy cream for one once of the milk. I found a delicious version in The Flowing Bowl by Edward Spencer, called Arctic Regions; it is made with four ounces of whole milk, two ounces of Pedro Ximenez sherry, and one ounce of brandy. Shake it well with ice and serve over ice that’s been dusted with cinnamon
