If you’re looking for a creamy cocktail to liven up your Christmas Eve, then you need to check out this Bourbon Coconut Milk Punch!
As I sit here writing this blog post, there’s a fire crackling in the fireplace, I’m sipping on a peppermint mocha, my puppy is curled up beside me and my Christmas tree is twinkling in the background. I would be wearing my favorite Christmas onesie, but I begrudgingly changed out of it today. I can’t help but realize in this exact moment how incredibly blessed I am.
Yes, I’ve worked hard to get where I am, but there are plenty of people in this world who are never given the chance to follow their dreams or to even develop them. Don’t think for a second that I’m not extremely thankful that I get to work from home and do what I love every single day.
So, my way of saying ‘Thank you’ for this opportunity is to present you with one of my favorite cocktails, the Bourbon Coconut Milk Punch!
If you partake in a few libations on Christmas Eve, this would be a perfect choice. Especially if you’re not a big fan of the thickness egg nog, but you like the flavor of nutmeg. Here’s another festive cocktail to get you in the holiday spirit, Cranberry and Broiled Orange Moscow Mule.
I’ll be back again before Christmas, but if I miss you, Happy Holidays!!!!!
- 1 1/4 ounces bourbon (I used Angels Envy)
- 1/2 ounce coconut rum
- 2 ounces of coconut milk
- 1/2 ounce simple syrup
- 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
- freshly grated nutmeg
- In a cocktail shaker filled 3/4 with ice, combine bourbon, rum, coconut milk, simple syrup, and vanilla. Hold the lid on tight and vigorously shake what your mama gave ya.
- Strain into an icy rocks glass and top with freshly grated nutmeg.
To make simple syrup, dissolve equal parts of sugar and water together.
