Ponche De Crème Drink Recipe: This Trinidadian version of eggnog is made with sweetened condensed milk instead of the heavy cream used in traditional eggnog recipes, and it always features lashings of dark rum and a splash of Angostura bitters, spiked with gratings of locally grown nutmeg.
- 6 eggs?
- 2 tsp. lime or lemon zest?
- 4 cups evaporated milk?
- 1 1/2 cups sweetened condensed milk (use more or less to taste)?
- 3/4 cup dark rum or spiced dark rum?
- 2 tsp. Angostura bitters
- 1/4 tsp. grated nutmeg?
- Cinnamon sticks for garnish
How to Make Ponche De Crème Drink:
Beat eggs and lime or lemon zest together for about a minute. Add evaporated milk and sweetened condensed milk and beat for 30 seconds. Add the rum, bitters and nutmeg and beat for one minute. Chill before serving over crushed ice. Garnish with cinnamon sticks. ~ Serves 4 – 6
