Day 4 #DairyMonth Recipes

Milk Punch
Someone mentioned that it's been a really long week. It has, hasn't it?!? So, I decided it was time for a cocktail. I've long been intrigued by milk punch. Though I'm not a huge milk drinker, I love creamy cocktails. White Russians were my drink of choice in college! Did I really just admit that? I also drank lots of red wine and we splurged on expensive Scotch when we were celebrating. But I definitely consumed my fair share of White Russians.

Since bourbon is my booze of choice these days, I decided to make a coffee milk punch, thinking it would be a kind of creamy Irish coffee. What I did the day before was to brew a strong pot of coffee and make coffee ice cubes!

Ingredients makes 1 cocktail

  • 3 T milk
  • 1 T heavy cream
  • 1 T coffee syrup (you can use 1 t coffee and 2 t simple syrup)
  • 2 T bourbon
  • Also needed: coffee ice cubes, ice, cocktail shaker

Place coffee ice cubes in your serving glass. Fill the cocktail shaker halfway with ice. Pour in milk, cream, coffee syrup, and bourbon. Shake for approximately 30 seconds. Strain into serving glass. Cheers!

  2. What a fun cocktail! It sounds delicious!

Jamaican Stew Peas #EattheWorld

  Here we are at November #EattheWorld event. What a year this has been! This challenge has been one that gave us some excuse for virtual travel as we've been sheltered-in-place with the coronavirus epidemic for most of 2020. So, we've been able to read about different parts of the world and create a dinner, or at least a dish, with that cuisine. This Eat the World project is spearheaded by Evelyne of  CulturEatz . Read more about  her challenge . This month, Evelyne had us heading to somewhere tropical: Jamaica. I have actually been to Jamaica, but it was almost thirty years ago...and it was just a jumping off point for the rest of our Caribbean exploration. I don't remember eating anything at all!

Lamskoteletten op zijn oud-Hollands for #TheBookClubCookbookCC

Here we are at April's #thebookclubcookbookCC event. It's hard to believe that we only have three more months in this year-long journey to explore - and cook from -  The Book Club Cookbook, Revised Edition: Recipes and Food for Thought from Your Book Club's Favorite Books and Authors  by Judy Gelman and Vicki Levy Krupp.* Judy, Vicki, and their publisher,  Tarcher-Penguin ,  have provided the hosting bloggers with copies of the book plus copies to giveaway each month of the project. Woohoo. Incredibly generous. This month Sarah at  Things I Make (for Dinner)  has selected  Girl With a Pearl Earring  by Tracy Chevalier.** Click to read  Sarah's invitation . She shared the recipe for Griet's Vegetable Soup, but invited us to find inspiration in any of the pages. On the Page... While the boys were playing around the lake during our week in Tahoe earlier in the month, I stayed by the fire and finished this book in one sitting. Loved it. photo by R
