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.

Ingredients

6 eggs
3 tins evaporated milk
1-1/2 tins condensed milk
1/2 c. rum
1 tsp. Angostura bitters
grated nutmeg

  2. Add evaporated milk
  3. Sweeten to taste with condensed milk.
  4. Add bitters, grated nutmeg, and rum according to taste.
  5. Remove lime peel and served with crushed ice.
