Commander’s Palace Brandy Milk Punch

Commander’s Palace Brandy Milk Punch

This punch is perfect for Mardi Gras or a weekend brunch. Unlike many cocktails, this one’s actually better made in large batches ahead and refrigerated until needed.
 

Serves 6

  • 1½ cups whole milk
  • ½ cup heavy cream
  • 12 ounces brandy or bourbon
  • 1 egg white (optional)
  • ½ cup sugar
  • ½ cup very cold water
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • Grated nutmeg to taste

Combine the milk, cream, egg white, sugar, and vanilla in a large pitcher. Stir well, or, if you

have a lid, shake. Serve in rocks glasses and sprinkle each cocktail with some nutmeg.
