A quintessential holiday staple.

Brandy Milk Punch has long been a holiday staple in Louisiana—and thanks to the New Orleans restaurants run by the Brennan family, it’s a brunch standard, too. This is the bar’s classic Brandy Milk Punch recipe, but feel free to swap bourbon or rum for brandy (or use a mix), and you can temper the drink’s richness by substituting whole milk or half-and-half for some or all of the cream.


  • 2 oz. whole milk
  • 2 oz. cream
  • 1 ½ oz. brandy
  • 1 oz. simple syrup (1:1)
  • ½ tsp. vanilla extract
  • Tools:shaker, strainer, grater
  • Glass:wine or coupe
  • Garnish:fresh-grated nutmeg


Shake all of the ingredients with ice, then strain into a chilled glass. Grate nutmeg over the top.
