Egg Milk Punch

Spring is my favorite season and just like putting away winter clothes and breaking out something for the new season also comes drinks to complement that time of year. I’m partial to libations made with whole eggs or egg whites to give the cocktail a full-bodied taste along with froth. This recipe for Egg Milk Punch is from famous nineteenth century barman Jerry Thomas 1830 – 1885 from his book Bartenders Guide 1887. Pretty simple to make and tasty too! brandy-milk-punch Jerry Thomas
