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.

This app ROCKS!!!

I've used a number of mix drink apps, and this one is by FAR the BEST! I've made a couple dozen drinks so far, and they're delicious. It suits my quality wants while (more importantly) suiting my inherent laziness. You put in what you have on hand, and it automatically lists all the drinks you can make! There's info on all the ingredients, which is pretty neat to learn some backstory. What I truly like is I can click an ingredient and it shows how many more drinks I can make. It's pretty fun picking up a new item and seeing 8 new drinks to try. There's a setting on the iPad that locks the app on so people can switch on the mixing app without letting anyone out of it, so I leave it by the bar and people can use it without worry of people snooping around. ;) The combination of all the drinks and this app that makes searching for, and making a drink, easy peezy lemon squeezey, and gives a real feeling of sophistication.
