Enjoy a bottle of homemade rich, luscious Ponche crema recipe (Dominican rum eggnog) with a very creamy texture and all the taste of our rum, and the spirit of Christmas. Made with simple, easy-to-find ingredients, it is also an inexpensive but refined Christmas gift.

– 5 cup condensed milk – 10 cup evaporated milk – 8 egg yolk – 2 cinnamon sticks – ¼ teaspoon nutmeg (freshly-grated) – ¾ cup white rum


Combining ingredients:

In a large bowl, whisk together the condensed milk and evaporated milk and the egg yolks. Stir until the mixture is well combined. Sieve, then discard solids. Add cinnamon sticks and nutmeg.

Cooking ingredients:

Boil in a medium pot in a bain-marie (hot water bath) over medium-low heat for 20 minutes, lower heat and simmer for 20 more minutes. Stir often with a wooden spoon to prevent it from sticking to the bottom.


Add the rum and remove it from the heat. Stir constantly but slowly until it cools down to room temperature. Remove the cinnamon sticks.

Chilling and serving:

Chill, then ladle into a bottle for storage, or to serve immediately.
