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.

An awesome cocktail app with curated recipes

I'm shocked that there are no reviews listed for this app. I found it on reddit's cocktails forum. The drink list in this app is much shorter than in many of the other apps I've seen, but the quality and reliability of the recipes is much much higher. These are more like the drinks you would get at a good mixology bar instead of the drink equivalent of your aunt's jello fruit mold that people just "love." I much prefer a list of cocktails that are reliable, good and repeatable than a huge pile of garbage recipes. This app is great and delivers great, reliable cocktails.
