Caribbean Milk Punch

Caribbean Milk Punch with dark rum, bourbon, vanilla syrup, and heavy cream

This Caribbean Milk Punch is a brunch specialty at Brennan’s, a restaurant in New Orleans. It’s pretty hard-hitting for a midday cocktail, but it is undeniably delicious!

Brennan’s uses Smith and Cross’ dark rum, which has a lovely funky character typical of Jamaican rums. You can use whatever dark rum you like – but it shouldn’t be too tame, lest it be subsumed by the rich creaminess of the heavy cream.

As in all milk punches, nutmeg isn’t a just a garnish – it’s a required ingredient that contributes a lot of flavor and dimension to the drink. Fresh-ground is best, but even the pre-ground stuff is better than nothing.

Ingredients

Instructions

Vigorously shake all ingredients (except the nutmeg) with ice. Strain into a chilled cocktail or coupe glass and garnish with the nutmeg.

Really Good App

We downloaded the app after seeing it as one of the top posts on /r/cocktails, and we've been playing around with it and adding our ingredients to the list. While it's not an all inclusive list of ingredients (missing some creme de ), it's a solid overall app and tosses out some truly spectacular recipes based on what you have in your liquor cabinet. Minor quibbles for an otherwise fantastic application!
