It’s like eggnog with noticeably less egg.
When it comes to holiday gatherings, mixing up a boozy punch is an easy way to serve a crowd. Traditionally eggnog comes to mind. But did you know eggnog is only a cousin of a more distinctly Southern libation known as milk punch? This recipe by Danny Welsh from Azurea at One Ocean in Jacksonville Beach features maple-glazed pecans. They may not be a traditional garnish, but they sure are tasty.
