Indian Summer Milk Punch

This Indian Summer Milk Punch takes a classic milk punch cocktail and gives it a remix inspired by 1920s India. Spices like cardamom and turmeric give refreshingly lively floral notes to a drink often associated with holiday nogs.

Serves: 1

Yield: 12-ounce

Glassware: American Metalcraft® Classic Mint Julep Cup





  • 2 ounces Diplomático Rum
  • 1 ounce Cardamom Liqueur
  • ½ ounce turmeric syrup, recipe below
  • 2 ounces cashew milk


  • Candied mango
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • ¼ teaspoon turmeric powder
  • ¼ teaspoon cardamom powder


Make candied mango garnish by coating mango in honey and dusting in sugar, turmeric powder, and cardamom powder.

Build the cocktail in a shaker by stirring together Diplomático Rum, Cardamom Liqueur, turmeric syrup, and cashew milk with ice until chilled.  Strain into an American Metalcraft® Classic Mint Julep Cup over ice.

Garnish with a piece of candied mango on and serve with a straw.

*Note, if making a party size, prepare in a pitcher with chilled ingredients and serve with ice.

Turmeric Syrup:  Add 1 cup water and 1/2 cup sugar to a small saucepan and heat until sugar is dissolved.  Add 1 tbsp turmeric powder and stir until dissolved. Allow to cool and store excess in the fridge.  Some separation will occur – just shake up the syrup before use.
