Matcha Cardamom Milk Punch

 Cardamom Milk Punch

You ready for a weird one? May we introduce to you the magical world of the milk punch. You may be picturing a creamy, dreamy, dairy-rific drink but this is quite the opposite. The milk actually acts as a clarifying agent, leaving you with a gorgeous, silky cocktail that is packed with complex flavors. Citrusy and herbaceous green cardamom is the perfect counterpart to the vibrant, earthy matcha. Patience is key with creating this punch, but don't be afraid! We can assure you that it's well worth the wait---and did we mention it's vegan!?!

matcha cardamom milk punch

ingredients

2 lemons (peels and juice)
2 limes (peels and juice)
2 cups pineapple juice
1 cup sugar
2 tsp. matcha powder
Spicewalla Whole Cloves
10 Spicewalla Coriander Seeds
2 tsp. Spicewalla Green Cardamom Powder
1 Spicewalla Star Anise
1 can coconut milk
1 can coconut cream
2 cups + ½ cup boiling water, separated
1 cup cognac
1 cup aged light rum
⅓ cup Midori melon liqueur

preparation
1. Combine coconut milk and coconut cream in a large mixing bowl and whisk until thoroughly combined. Don't whisk too hard or it will start to whip! Set aside.
2. Combine matcha powder and 1/2 cup boiling water in a small bowl, and stir to combine.
3. Add the remaining ingredients to a large container, adding the remaining 2 cups of boiling water last. Stir well.
4. Add the coconut mixture to the large container and stir again. Don't be scared, the milk will curdle! This is what you want!
5. Cover your container and let it sit for 24 hours.
6. Use a fine filter bag (like the kind used to make almond milk) or a double layer of cheesecloth to very carefully strain your milk punch. This process will take a while, so be patient! Pour slowly, a little at a time, taking care not to agitate the curdled liquid.
7. Repeat the straining process at least one more time, the goal is to clarify the punch so that it is clear and beautiful. The curdled milk "raft" will act as a filter for a finer strain.
8. Once you've achieved the level of clarity that you're happy with, bottle and chill.
9. Serve cold over ice or in a frozen coupe glass. Garnish with a pinch of matcha powder! Festive!
