Venezuelan Ponche Crema

Ponche crema is a Venezuelan liqueur that also gave its name to a similar homemade beverage. The liqueur is often called Venezuelan eggnogs as it is milk- and egg-based. This creamy liqueur was invented by Eliodoro González P. in the early 20th century.

However, it is known that it consists of milk, eggs, spices, and liquor. The combination has influenced the creation of numerous homemade versions that usually combine milk or condensed milk, eggs, vanilla, and nutmeg, along with rum, brandy, or cane spirit (aguardiente).

 

 

RECIPE INGREDIENTS

1 cup whole milk

1/2 teaspoon lemon zest (or lime)

1/3 cup rum (preferably Venezuelan)

1 teaspoon Angostura bitters

4 egg yolks

3/4 cup sweetened condensed milk

1/2 cup evaporated milk

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Pinch nutmeg , freshly grated

Cinnamon sticks (and / or ground cinnamon)
