Like it or not, the holidays are upon us. It's a time when our drinks become browner and richer. This milk punch is a nice compromise if you're not an egg nog fan. The milk brings a richness to the warmth of the spirits, and the nutmeg adds the aroma that always puts me in a good mood.
As a big fan of Charles Dickens, Punches intrigue me. So reading through the Punch iOS app and samplng Dave Wondrich's book has put me in a mind to do a future series on punches. Perhaps as a spirit-raiser in the new year.
Add all components to a shaker with ice, and shake vigorously. Strain into a rocks glass and garnish with nutmeg to taste.
