Mardis Gras is one of those holidays that seems more fun to me from afar. I love the colors and sparkle and immense joy that shines through the photos, and I absolutely love New Orleans, but I’m just not a fan of crowds. I would rather visit New Orleans when I can get to lots of restaurants and try all the food, and not be limited by crowds and chaos. Since I love the idea of Mardi Gras, even though I’ve never been, I thought it would be fun to bring you a Mardis Gras recipe!
There are so many easy King Cake recipes floating around out there, but it’s really the only Mardi Gras treat that I’m familiar with, so I did some digging and read about Milk Punch. The name is not the most appealing, but the beverage sounds delish! Milk Punch is a cocktail that is essentially bourbon, milk, and vanilla. It sounded interesting, but the Kentucky girl in me can’t resist a bourbon cocktail!
In full disclosure, I have not actually tasted this cocktail, but I did taste this cheesecake, and to be honest, whether it’s accurate or not, this is an absolutely delicious dessert. I would even go as far as to say that this is one of my best recipes yet! So if you’re a fan of Milk Punch, leave me a comment and let me know if this is on point! And if you’ve never heard of Milk Punch, give this a go and let me know what you think!
