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.

This is a clean, straightforward app that allows you quick access to find drinks to make based on ingredients that you have. I love it because the UI is intuitive and the drink selections are organized into subcategories.
