It finally feels like fall outside, which means IT’S TIME FOR MILK PUNCH!
Every year, as everyone starts craving pumpkin spice, I wait patiently for the crisp air to make milk punch.
The delicate spices, stired with whole milk, rum and brandy bring out all that’s best in fall drinks.
It’s the predecessor to the colder winter months, where you can find me sipping eggnog by the fire.
So fill up your favorite cocktail glass, put on a big wool sweater and go jump in a pile of leaves! You deserve it!
