Our “Milk Punch” at Gold Bar will surprise you with its transparency and sensory richness.

Immerse yourself in the historical charm of Milk Punch, an icon of mixology dating back to 1711, when the creativity of Mary Rockett, an English housewife, gave birth to the first Milk Punch in modern history.

Her recipe included Brandy, vanilla, lemon, water, and sugar, and was topped with a unique touch: hot milk, carefully filtered through kitchen cloths.

This creation captured the attention of illustrious figures, including the President of the United States, Benjamin Franklin, leaving an indelible mark on the history of mixology.

But what exactly does clarifying a liquid mean?

In a nutshell, clarification aims to make a liquid crystal clear, eliminating particles that obscure its clarity. It’s a process that transforms an opaque liquid into a clear and brilliant one.

How is this magic achieved?

Milk washing and filtration clarification are the key techniques.

The ingredients are mixed, excluding the hot milk, in an airtight container. The mixture is left to rest, tasting and balancing the flavors if necessary.

Then the milk is heated and added to the mix. The whole mixture is left to rest in the fridge for at least 24 hours.

Finally, the liquid is carefully filtered using a filter such as the V60, to achieve crystal clarity.
