When we were in New Orleans recently I finally tried a Brandy Milk Punch and my life has never been the same. Ever since that first sip I’ve been on a mission to find the perfect recipe. Of course all I really did was look through all my cookbooks and did a little googling.
This past weekend, in the name of research, I tested out a recipe. It was a winner. I plan on serving it this Christmas Eve with brunch.
Milk Punch (I won’t call it Brandy because that would be very limiting and we at Lolling About don’t like limits)
- 1 cup vanilla ice cream (this is not the time to skimp on the cheap crap)
- 1/4 cup brandy or bourbon, whatever floats your boat
In a blender mix ice cream and alcohol until smooth and frothy. I suggest letting your ice cream sit out for a few minutes, it will make it easier to blend.
Serve in a glass with a sprinkling of fresh nutmeg.
Goes great with a brunch or lunch or early afternoon cocktail or dessert or whenever.
