Recipe Link Up- Ponche de creme

I'm under the wire to get into the recipe link up! This time, I am linking up with Schue Love and The Lovely Cupboard.

I thought of so many different Christmas recipes to share and couldn't decide which one... should I share the yummy Mexican Wedding Cakes, my super easy, super secret Skor Bars, our family Ambrosia, my stuffing, a sorrel  drink and then finally I decided on a trinidadian recipe- Ponche de Creme (also called Punch a creme or ponche a crema) --- if you love egg nog then you will love ponche de creme- an adult version of egg nog which packs a bit of a ponche , I mean punch.

Here goes:

6 eggs
2 tbsp freshly grated lime zest
1 and 1/2 tins of condensed milk
1 and 1/2 tins of evaporated milk (or half and half)
1 and 1/2 cups of good quality rum
1 tbsp Angostura bitters (if you have it on hand)
Freshly grated nutmeg to taste ( a couple pinches)

1- Using a double boiler, boil the eggs, zest and milk which have been mixed together. Stir pot constantly so the mixture doesn't cook and cook for about 5 minutes until the mixture thickens a bit
2- Let the mixture cool then add the bitters, nutmeg and rum.
3- Store in the fridge.
4- Serve with lots of crushed ice (I like to add a touch of milk to cut the calories and the thickness a bit). Also add some more grated nutmeg if you wish.
