"Prideful Milk Punch | Crafted Pour"

"Happy June everyone, and a very merry Pride to those of us who celebrate! This week I tried something that I’d been meaning to do for a while, a milk punch. My first intro to the world of milk punches was a Clarified Milk Punch recipe where you do a bit of cocktail chemistry to take all of the cloudiness out of the milk. Well, I haven’t taken a chemistry class in a hot minute, so I opted for an infusion-based approach appropriate for the occasion! I’m sure there’s an array of colorful garnishes out there that capture the spirit of the rainbow (basically all fruits), however, what’s an easier rainbow to grab than a children’s bowl of cereal. It catches that young part of our brains that says two things, “Ooh” and “Aah”. The “Ooh” is for the colorful visuals and appealing (yet oddly unsettling) animated mascots, and the “Aah” is for all the sugar that’s about to kick off the day. It wound up tasting much like you would expect bourbon and milk to taste like, and a bit of the flavor of the individual cereals. Oddly enough, each of the cereals did indeed bring a separate angle to the whole combo. The winner for smell is definitely the Trix, and the flavor lends itself most to the oat milk itself. So, perhaps if you’re willing to put bourbon and milk together with cereal, you might as well leave that original bowl out to steep for a while. Cheers y’all, and may the Pride be with you always 🏳‍🌈 P.S: The recipe below is for a single glass, however, if you'd like to size it up like in the photo, multiply every ingredient by 12 😁", "undefined", "Prideful Milk Punch",

Discard the cereal and keep the milk as an ingredient! Shake everything together and strain it into a glass. Throw a couple more colorful cereal bits in there (I used Trix, Fruity Pebbles, and Froot Loops). Themed,Communal,Originals,Shaken
