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.
