This historic clarified milk punch recipe originates from a 1711 British recipe, but The Varnish's Max Seaman made some modifications for the modern day drinker. It's a rich, citrusy drink that will easily be the star of your holiday party.

Notes: To make turbinado syrup, dissolve 1 pound of turbinado sugar (about 2 1/4 cups) in 3 cups hot water.
