Perfect for the holidays, Maggie Battista has created this decadent Midnight Milk Punch for us! Serve it with cookies for a midnight snack.

From Maggie: “When eggnog cartons line grocery store shelves, I know it’s time to make my homemade version. Full of brandy, rum and whiskey, the eggnog chills in the back of the fridge, waiting for holiday visitors. I also enjoy this holiday cocktail: it’s an eggless milk punch that uses a small-batch caramel or butterscotch sauce to add instant depth. This punch can also be served warm in a teacup.”


Midnight Milk Punch
Serves 3

• 1/3 cup whole milk
• 1/3 cup heavy cream
• 2 pinches cinnamon, plus more for garnish
• 1 heaping tablespoon of caramel sauce
• 1 tablespoon maple syrup
• 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
• 1.5 ounces brandy

1. In a small saucepan over a medium flame, heat milk, heavy cream, cinnamon, caramel sauce, maple syrup and vanilla. Stir on and off to help dissolve the caramel. Keep on the heat for just a few minutes so you don’t scald the milk. Once the caramel is dissolved, remove the pan from the heat and let cool a few minutes.
2. In a cocktail shaker filled with ice, add the brandy and pour over the slightly cooled milk mixture. Cover and shake, shake, shake until a bit frothy. Pour into small glasses (about 4 ounces) and add an extra pinch of cinnamon to each for garnish.

    I’m sold! I love finding new cocktails especially milk ones! I’m glad this doesn’t have an egg in it. I find a lot of cocktails like this do! I’ll definitely try this out! =)
