Milk Punch For The Holiday

From the pages of GQ, comes this recipe for Milk Punch to sweeten your holiday party with.

GQ Milk Punch
Serves 12 to 15

1 cup whole milk
3 cups heavy cream
1 cup raw sugar
1 liter brandy
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • In a saucepan, bring the milk and cream to a simmer over medium heat and add the sugar. Stir to dissolve and remove from heat.
  • In a large punch bowl, combine the cream-sugar mixture with the rum and vanilla. Whisk well.
  • Freeze overnight and remove approximately two hours before serving. Break up remaining ice before serving.

Or, from the pages of Pirate's Pantry (a recent gift given by my in-laws), comes Southwest Louisiana's take:
