Ginger-Vanilla Milk Punch wakes up your holiday spirit. This crisp winter sipper is full of citrus and zippy ginger.
Bring milk, cream, sugar, ginger, lemon rind strips, orange rind strip, and split vanilla bean to a simmer in a saucepan over medium heat, stirring often. Remove from heat; cover and let stand 20 minutes. Strain mixture into a pitcher. If desired, stir in 2 Tbsp. dark rum per 1 cup punch just before serving.
