Drink This: Brandy Milk Punch

Combining two of Wisconsin’s specialties – brandy and dairy – seems like an excellent idea, especially when vanilla and nutmeg play a part. 


2 oz brandy

1½ oz half-and-half or heavy cream

1 oz simple syrup

½ tsp vanilla extract


Freshly grated nutmeg

Combine the brandy, cream, simple syrup and vanilla extract in a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake until the shaker is frosty. Strain into a rocks glass filled with ice, and garnish with the grated nutmeg.
