This New Orleans Milk Punch is a drink in the tradition of Bloody Marys and other drinks designed to be drunk the morning after, to ease the pain. If you're enjoying it in the morning, think about adding a shot or two of espresso for a whole different but still delicious drink. Watch out: It's so tasty, be sure the cure doesn't become the cause!
New Orleans Milk Punch also makes a delightfully lighter alternative to classic eggnog.
