Traditional milk punches combine milk with rum and/or brandy, citrus juice, sugar and spices. Adding club soda to this cocktail "gives it a nice puffed-up texture," says bartender Wayne Collins. It's terrific as an after-dinner drink.
1 1/2 ounces amber rum
1/2 ounce dark crème de cacao
1 1/2 ounces heavy cream
1/2 ounce vanilla syrup
Finely grated zest of 1/2 small orange
1 ounce chilled club soda
Pinch each of unsweetened cocoa and freshly grated nutmeg, for garnish
How to Make It
Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Add all of the remaining ingredients except the club soda and garnishes; shake well. Strain into an ice-filled highball glass; stir in the soda. Garnish with cocoa and nutmeg.
