Traditional milk punch is made with either brandy or bourbon. We switched those out for spiced rum to make a spiced rum milk punch that's just like homemade eggnog—just without the egg. This creamy cocktail is sweetened condensed milk and flavored with cinnamon sticks and vanilla. The best part? You can make the milk punch mixture ahead of time and store it in your fridge for future boozing. When you’re ready to serve the milk punch, just mix in the spiced rum and serve over ice. We sprinkled cinnamon sugar over top, but feel free to garnish with nutmeg, too.
