Lucky Charms Cereal Milk Punch

Don’t let that cereal milk go to waste—add some booze to it and make yourself a cocktail that’s better than any pot of gold. A take on classic Milk Punch, this sweet and creamy drink is made with milk infused with Lucky Charms marshmallows, simple syrup infused with Lucky Charms cereal and a healthy dose of bourbon and dark rum. It’s garnished with a handful of marshmallows for a cocktail that will bring you back to Saturday mornings parked in front of the TV watching whatever cartoon came on the air. Whip up a big batch for St. Patrick’s Day or your next brunch.
