Hot spiced bourbon milk punch is a simple and cozy winter cocktail full of warming spices and sweetened with just a touch of maple syrup. Top with whipped cream to make it extra special! Great as for the holidays or as a Christmas drink.
Pour the milk into a saucepan. Add the cinnamon stick, allspice berries, and maple syrup.
On medium heat, warm the milk until it's steaming and very hot, with small bubbles around the edges, but not boiling.
Take it off the heat, cover, and let steep for about 10 minutes.
If you are adding the bourbon, add that now. (If the punch cools down too much at this point, put it back on the heat and warm until steaming.) Then stir in the vanilla.
Strain out the spices. Pour the hot milk punch into two glasses. Top with whipped cream and nutmeg.
