Peppermint Milk Punch

The Taste Creation bloggers are treating you to all things peppermint this month. I'm sharing a Peppermint Milk Punch, sometimes called  Candy Cane Punch, with you.  This is delightfully light on the peppermint.  Just enough to be a fun holiday cocktail!

Two jars with red and white striped lids filled with a pink milk punch

It's no secret in my house that I get all giddy when the first sighting of candy canes happens in my grocery store! I hug myself and savor the moment. I take a deep whiff of the air in the aisle (it has that slightly new, slightly peppermint aroma) and hold it.... and then gently exhale.  It is a moment, people, I'm telling ya.

I love making this punch because it is all dairy. No soda sneaks its way in this milk punch.  If you are non-dairy people, try making it with almond milk and let me know how that goes.
