Ponche de Crème Recipe (Cream Punch): A Holiday Rum Cocktail Recipe From Trinidad

Love eggnog? Then you'll probably enjoy this easy cream punch – Ponche de Crème – from Trinidad. Ponche de Creme is a popular Caribbean Christmas cocktail that's made with rum, milk and spices. It's a creamy sip of the holidays!

This rum punch can be served over ice or just as it is. A cinnamon stick is a fun stirrer for this rum cocktail. You can use light or dark rum. You could make this drink in a blender if you don't have an electric mixer.
