Holiday Cocktail: Brandy Milk Punch

The holidays call for a good cocktail.

Eggnog is good but Milk Punch is better.

Here is my fave recipe…

Brandy Milk Punch

Brandy Milk Punch is sure to pick you up!

During Colonial times on the East Coast, concoctions of brandy were thought to have powerful medicinal properties. Healing or not, few things will pick you up more deliciously than a Brandy Milk Punch. Although it is closely associated with the holiday season, true fans of this libation enjoy it all year long. While the drink was not invented in New Orleans, Brennan’s – one of the world’s most famous brunch places – takes credit for perfecting it. It’s a treat. And what better compliment to your Eggs Benedict than a terrific Brandy Milk Punch at any of the places that have perfected this drink.

If you had too much fun the night before, a Brandy Milk Punch is just the thing to put a little pep back in your step. Still, if you can’t clear your calendar for the afternoon, exercise caution. The recipe does pack a punch.

Brandy Milk Punch Recipe

  • 2 ounces brandy
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1 teaspoon powdered sugar
  • 3 ice cubes
  • cracked ice
  • freshly grated nutmeg

In a cocktail shaker, combine the brandy, milk, and sugar with 3 ice cubes and shake until frothy, about one minutes. Strain into a double old-fashioned glass with cracked ice. Sprinkle with nutmeg and serve.
