Cocktail Wednesdays: Aztec Milk Punch

Aztec Milk Punch

I got a bit of a late start on tonight's drink, so rather than the drink I intended to make, which requires cooking up a batter, I chose to try to find another drink to use the chocolate bitters in.  With slim pickings in what I could find off the bat, I decided to make a twist another drink we did in the past, Milk Punch. We're still deep in the grips of winter, though it has topped freezing frequently of late.  Yesterday, we had extra-heavy snowfall, and though it was not the storm they anticipated, it did set the scene for more wintery drinks.

Aztec Milk Punch

1 oz Brandy
1/2 oz Spiced Dark Rum
1/2 tbsp Sugar
4 dashes Fee Brothers Aztec Chocolate Bitters
4 oz Whole Milk

Add all ingredients to a mixing glass
Shake with ice and strain into a rocks glass filled with shaved or crushed ice
Garnish with a ground cinnamon.

The verdict: a traditional wintery drink in the eggnogg flavor family without the eggs, and therefor lighter.  A little bit of chocolate,  but not much.  Nothing particularly outstanding, but not bad either, and quick and easy to make.
