How to make punch ah creme eggnog

I know that a lot of people are all for Thanksgiving, but Christmas is really the season for me. Now let's not get too excited. I do not like Christmas decorations. I remember when I was younger, with numerous years of putting up and taking down our Christmas tree, I eventually told my mom to "Put it in a corner and cover it with a sheet". I promise I am not a scrooge.

I am, though, here for the feeling of joy, cheer and well the food. 
There are some things you associate with a Trini Christmas. Pastelle, black cake, and well ponche de creme, or as we say "Punch a creme".

This drink is prized possession. You have to be special for me to bring out a bottle when you're visiting. And you better believe I will be watching to make sure you don't take too much of it.

What's in this prize of gold? Condensed milk and rum with a hint of spices. Yes. I'm guarding a bottle of creamy milk and rum concoction. And you would too if you tasted it.

This drink is eggnog's bigger and more fabulous cousin. I am not a fan of eggnog. The advantage that ponche de creme has over this is the inclusion of lime peel and angostura bitters which gives a nice citrus taste to the drink.
