Bajan Mama's Punche De Creme

I know this Blog is about Our Great RV Escape but food and drink are an essential part of any great escape, right? So with that in mind, here is my dear mother's recipe for Bajan (Barbadian) Punche De Creme - a wonderful libation that can be enjoyed any time of the year!
  • 13 oz. Rum white rum is best, to preserve the color of the drink. Bajan white rum is even better, of course!
  • 6 ½ oz. Falernum this is a liqueur flavored with lime, almond, vanilla, ginger, and clove, and is an essential ingredient in many Caribbean cocktails. In the US, Falernum can be found at large Liquor stores with a decent international section or can be ordered on line. Click here for one on-line source. Bajan-made Falernum is best, in my humble opinion
  • 14 oz. Evaporated milk
  • 10 oz. Condensed milk
  • Ground Nutmeg
  • Angostura Bitters optional
Blend or vigorously stir the first 4 ingredients together. Pour into glasses over ice and sprinkle with a little nutmeg. You may also enjoy adding a dash of Bitters. Serves 4-6.

I'd love to hear what you think of this drink... do you have a similar recipe?

We must try this out while In Key West. Along with your famous Rum Punch, of course.
