2 oz Mezcal, Ilegal
1 1⁄2 oz Bénédictine
1 1⁄2 oz Cynar
1⁄2 t Bitters (Villa prefers Crude Cardamom & Caramelized Raisin bitters, a limited-edition bottling, but says an equal amount of any style of bitters will work)
8 oz Milk (Rehydrated toasted whole milk. See note)
1 Raisins (as garnish)

Combine all except milk. Add batch to milk. Wait 10 minutes. Strain to fine-mesh sieve 2 times using the same sieve. Bottle. Serve 3 ounces over big ice and stir to chill. Garnish with raisins.


Rehydrated Toasted Whole Milk

1. Preheat an oven to 275°F. Spread 40 grams of milk powder (Villa recommends Anthony’s or Hoosier Hill Farm dry milk powders) on a sheet pan lined with parchment paper. Toast in the oven for 15 minutes.

2. In a saucepan, bring 8 ounces of water to a simmer. Whisk in the toasted milk powder and 1/2 gram of salt. Reduce the heat to low, and allow to rehydrate for at least 5 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool. Whisk well (or use an immersion blender) before using in milk punch.
