In this episode, we talk about the various incarnations of Milk Punch, both historical and contemporary.

Some of the topics we discuss include:

  • The earliest proto-milk punch: Scailtin, and the historical and cultural forces responsible for this beverage being created in medieval Ireland.
  • How milk punch came to be clarified when citrus became available due to the sudden availability of citrus in the 16- and 1700s.
  • How to re-create Ben Franklin's famous milk punch recipe using ingredients and tools available today.
  • A few notes on New Orleans-style milk punch.
  • And much, much more.
