Nigori Milk Punch

Nigori Milk Punch cocktail with nigori sake, cognac, Navan vanilla liqueur, and bitters

A milk punch without milk? Sure, we were skeptical – but Jim Meehan (of PDT and other mixological ventures) hasn’t ever steered us wrong, so we gave it a shot. We’re glad we did; the Nigori Milk Punch is a creamy, lovely cocktail that quickly became one of our favorite ways to showcase unfiltered nigori sake.

The PDT Cocktail Book recipe calls for Navan, a vanilla liqueur. You could use Tuaca or Licor 43, although they have a little more citrus and a little less vanilla. The recipe also calls for Feldman’s Barrel Aged Bitters, but if you can’t find that brand, you can use another brand of barrel-aged bitters, vanilla bitters, or even just Angostura.

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!
