The Perfect Breakfast Cocktail Is Cereal, Milk, and Bourbon

What should you drink for breakfast? You can guzzle down coffee. But that gets old after a while and stimulants are not necessarily a good idea in the morning. A better alternative is an invigorating cocktail. Kim Patton-Bragg, a professional mixologist in New Orleans, has a great solution that she calls the Cereal Killer. She describes her recipe in Garden & Gun magazine:

4 cups Honey Smacks cereal
1 gallon whole milk
2½ bottles Rebel Yell bourbon
2 oz. vanilla extract
1 quart simple syrup
Nutmeg, for garnish

The preparation takes a while because the cereal needs to marinate in the milk for at least an hour. I recommend starting that process the night before. Patton-Bragg says that if it's prepared correctly, the Cereal Killer is "an eye-opener."
