I am usually not one for the sweet, filling and dare I say highly caloric cocktail drinks but this one caught my eye. While the kids fill their bellies with cookies, cakes and other goodies on Christmas Eve, I think I will serve these to the adults as an after dinner treat.
This cocktail was featured on MadeByGirl but provided by Lauren from Perpetually Chic. Milk punch is an old drink that's common in New Orleans and also a holiday tradition throughout the Deep South.
HOLIDAY MILK PUNCH
(I think I'll call mine a "Frosty Snowman")
-4 cups vanilla bean ice cream
-1 cup whole milk
-1/2 cup bourbon
-1/4 cup white rum
-1/4 cup dry brandy
Blend first five ingredients for 5-10 seconds. Pour into stainless steel pitcher or chilled bowl to keep cold. Serve in chilled glasses and top each with a sprinkle of nutmeg.
*Note: Recipe yields 6 punch cups. Make 2-3 batches for a party and reserve extra in the freezer.
