Confessions of a Mixologist: Brandy Milk Punch

The classic New Orleans cocktail, the Brandy Milk Punch tends to get pushed behind other iconic Mardi Gras drinks. With over 300 options of brandies, you have a lot of options. You'll see this traditional mid-day treat on almost every brunch menu in New Orleans. Warning: If you mix up one of these, exercise caution and take the rest of the day off.
