~ Hot Brandy-Milk Punch ~ Â

This old fashioned favorite is still delicious today. It’s the prefect thing to warm cold snow bunnies at a ski party. It’s also much lighter (fat-wise, not alcohol) than most other drinks of its kind.

Makes 4 servings

2 Tbsp molasses
2 Tbsp honey
2 Tbsp water
1/2 tsp. ginger
4 C milk
