Bourbon Milk Punch

The Bourbon Milk Punch is a classic New Orleans breakfast cocktail, served to hungry locals and hungover Mardi Gras revelers.

We’ve seen a million Bourbon Milk Punch variations, calling for everything from ice cream to spiced rum. We favor simplicity here – this drink’s job is to settle the stomach and cool off a hearty breakfast of grits and spicy sausage. That’s why we like Robert Hess’ recipe, from his excellent video series The Cocktail Spirit.

You can use milk, or go with half-and-half or sweet cream. We’d avoid heavy cream; shaking it up will make the drink too thick. If you use milk, it should be full-fat.

Terrific Design!

Absolutely love this app. Gives a great visual representation of the ingredients and the user interface is well designed. Been using it to learn how to make cocktails, the descriptions are great about the drinks. As a novice barman, I love that I am learning the origin of the drink and alternative ways to make the drink. Be prepared to have a wide range of alcohol at you disposal! I can make heaps of drinks with the decent home collection I have, but seeing all the recipes what I could make gets me excited! Highly recommended, everyone loves the person who makes excellent drinks!
