In Guys and Dolls, Jean Simmons and Marlon Brando drank their milk punch by Havana moonlight, but it is more commonly served at brunch or as a morning-after pick-me-up. You can vary the amount of sugar to taste, but keep in mind that unlike daiquiris or Mai Tais, milk punch should be relatively sweet.
