Christmas Bourbon
Almond Milk Punch

Liquid happiness, right here.  Christmas Bourbon, a splash of heavy cream, vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg. And vanilla almond milk. And did I say our Christmas Bourbon?
This is so much better than the Quik, Yoo Hoo or Ovaltine we were fed as kids. Of course, we were kids and couldn’t have the good stuff….. BUT WE CAN NOW!
Santa would appreciate a glass, or gallon, left out, along with his standard plate of cookies on 12.24. (Technically he’s not driving. Rudolph is.)
He asked me to spread the word: Oatmeal cookies if you have them. Or gingerbread. They both pair nicely with the milk punch.   (And if you don’t bake, Oreos can be substituted without consequence. He is uncompromising however on the Christmas Bourbon. Santa said).
Not a bad gig that Claus guy has.
This Milk Punch is perfect. Happy Holidays. Happier everything. Truly.
