Another classic Christmas drink in Trinidad is Ponche De Crème. Or as local Trinis know it, punch-ah-creme. It is a milk drink not straying far from what is known as eggnog but with heavy milky overtones. And of course, we can’t forget what it is mainly known for – the alcohol. Here’s a simple recipe for this popular drink.
3 tins evaporated milk
1-1/2 tins condensed milk
1/2 c. rum
1 tsp. Angostura bitters
- Beat eggs with lime peel until light and fluffy
- Add evaporated milk
- Sweeten to taste with condensed milk.
- Add bitters, grated nutmeg, and rum according to taste.
- Remove lime peel and served with crushed ice.
