Milk Punch drink with nutmeg sprinkles

This is a soothing, easy going sort of drink that’s very nice for when you want to relax. It’s also a nice choice at dinnertime, or as an after dinner drink.


  • 1 1/2 ounces bourbon or brandy
  • 6 ounces milk
  • 1 teaspoon superfine sugar

Fill a cocktail shaker with crushed ice and pour in all the ingredients. Shake thoroughly, and strain the mixture into a 10 ounce glass. Garnish by sprinkling nutmeg over the surface.
