Another good low alcohol Christmas drink.

Milk Punch

Heat a skillet over low heat 2-3 minutes and add in 1/2 cup of allspice berries. Toast for an additional minute. Wrap toasted berries in a towel and smash 'em up with the skillet. Add the crushed berries to a quart jar and pour in 2.5 cups of "navy proof" rum. Let this sit for 10 days.

On day 10, add 200 grams of sugar in to a sauce pan. Strain the jar mixture in to the pan. Low heat, stir occasionally for 15 minutes. Cool and store in a jar.

Heat 2.25 cups of water to 208 degrees. Add in 8 earl grey tea bags. Steep tea for 3 minutes exactly. Add in 85 grams of sugar, 4 oz dark rum, 2 oz of the spiced rum you made above, 2 oz lemon juice, and 1 cup of ruby port.

In a pitcher, pour 1 cup WHOLE milk first. Add the tea mixture on top. Let sit in a cool place for an HOUR.

Strain mixture through a coffee filter.
