Recipe: Pumpkin Spice Bourbon Milk Punch

I started thinking about what we at Probably This (probablythis.com) do best, and I think you'll agree with my answer: we take super basic generic trends that everyone unanimously hates on and make them okay to love with just a simple, obvious twist! So this week, I was unironically craving a pumpkin spice latte. But since all the cool kids of the Internet have made me feel intense shame for wanting such a thing, I found a little loophole, and where there's a loophole, there's usually booze or something. In this particular loophole, there's a whole lot of bourbon packed into a velvety smooth autumnal cornucopia of pleasure. Pumpkin spice bourbon milk punches! Recipe below, y'all.

*Whipped Cream

 ("The Bartender Way")

What:

2 oz heavy whipping cream

.5 oz simple syrup

How:

Combine heavy whipping cream and simple syrup in clean shaking tin. Detach the coil of a Hawthorne strainer and drop into shaking tin. Shake vigorously until you can no longer hear the sound of the spring hitting the inside of the tin. Dollop whipped cream right on top of your drink or spoon it into a piping bag to have more control over the shape.
