Rum Milk Punch is one of our favorite holiday treats. Sometimes made with brandy or bourbon, we love what spiced rum does for this boozy beverage. Our Apple Pie Spice simple syrup sweetens this punch perfectly with just the right amount of warm spices.
Ingredients for the Simple Syrup:
1 cup water
1 cup sugar
1/2 tsp Apple Pie Spice
Directions for the Simple Syrup:
Simmer the water and sugar in a small pot until it's clear and thickened a bit-about 5 mins. Whisk in the Apple Pie Spice. Set aside. Can be refrigerated for up to 2 weeks.
Directions for the Rum Punch:
Combine the rum, milk, half & half, Spiced Simple Syrup and Vanilla Puree in a pitcher. To serve on the rocks, pour into glasses over ice. For a frothy version, shake portions in a cocktail shaker with lots of ice. Strain into highball or shot glasses. No matter how you serve it, dust glasses with a few scrapings of fresh nutmeg.
