Punch de creme is the Caribbean's version of Eggnog. There is even a song about drinking punch de creme on Christmas morning. This thick, creamy, rummy beverage is very popular in Trinidad and Tobago but most of the other Caribbean countries have their own versions.

As a tip, make the punch de creme at least 24 hours before you serve it so that the flavors can really meld together and the drink be properly chilled.

  • 2 limes (or lemons, zested)

  • 1 3/4 (14 ounces) cans condensed milk
  • 1 cup dark rum
  • 2 teaspoons Angostura Bitters
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
