Some cocktails are designed to be sloshed back, but others are made to be the piece de resistance of a good meal; the highlight of a party.

Brady’s Milk Punch is one of those cocktails. An Irish twist on a New Orleans classic, it is smooth, creamy, and decadent – the perfect brunch cocktail or even a liquid dessert.

The following recipe was designed by renowned mixologist Joann Spiegel of The Dead Rabbit, an Irish-owned craft cocktail bar in New York City. It uses Brady’s Irish Cream and Clontarf Irish Whiskey from Castle Brands.
