Milk Punch

Patrick Spears/Supercall

While this frothy cocktail can be sipped day or night, its home is at the brunch table. Though it dates back to pre-colonial days, it found its rightful place amongst cocktail royalty in New Orleans where it’s served to ailing Bourbon Street survivors looking for a little relief. It’s soothing, sweet and includes just enough alcohol (a rich mix of bourbon and dark rum) to help you shake last night’s Mardi Gras beads out of your head.



  • 1.5 oz Bourbon
  • 0.5 oz Dark Rum
  • 0.5 oz Vanilla Syrup
  • 2 oz Milk
  • Grated nutmeg, for garnish
