Rockey’s Milk Punch on the rocks is a great introduction to the cocktail, especially if you want to experience its unique mouthfeel without devoting hours to making it yourself. Once you’re ready for next-level drinking, this elevated spritz recipe from Dorman highlights the liqueur’s strengths. “I find Rockey’s mixes especially well with bubbly ingredients,” says Dorman. “The pineapple and citrus notes of the milk punch balance out the more floral elements of the cocktail.”
