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



Procedure
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!
