Strawberry Milk Punch

Strawberry Milk Punch with fresh strawberry, cognac, sweet cream, and vanilla syrup

We’re fans of creamy, sweet drinks when they’re well-balanced and make use of good ingredients. Sadly, dessert drinks that meet our increasingly-snobby standards are few and far between.

Enter Erik Castro of Polite Provisions, a fantastically inventive cocktail bar in sunny San Diego. This recipe, from the bar’s dessert menu, tempers the sweetness of vanilla syrup (check the ingredient page for a DIY recipe) with fresh strawberry and the bracing bite of cognac. For extra strawberry goodness, swap out the vanilla syrup for homemade strawberry syrup, or go half-and-half with both syrups.

Castro’s recipe calls for the drink to be garnished with a Nilla Wafer, an American vanilla cookie (or biscuit). You can use your own local vanilla wafer brand, or just garnish with a fresh strawberry.

Ingredients

Instructions

Muddle the strawberry in your shaker, and add the remaining ingredients. Shake with ice and double-strain into an ice-filled short glass. Garnish with a vanilla cookie or a fresh strawberry.

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.
