Créme de Vie - Cuban Egg Nog!
(To the tune of "fa la la la la la la la"
Rum rum rum rum rum rum rum rum rum!)
This is a Cuban Christmas staple! And reminds Andrew of Christmas' past.
It's a super sweet strong eggnog that is usually sipped...just like Cuban coffee!
Here's what you need!
8 egg yolks
1 can evaporated milk
1 can sweetened condensed milk
2 cups sugar
3/4 cup water
1/2 cup Bacardi white rum (or more, but it will thin it out)
Here are some loose instructions! It's pretty fool-proof!
In a small pan, make a simple syrup by mixing sugar and water together over low heat. Cool till room temperature.
In a blender, mix egg yolks, evaporated milk, condensed milk, simple sugar and rum.
Once all blended, bottle and refrigerate! It makes about 5 cups.
The longer it sits...the smoother it gets.
We double the recipe when we make it because it goes fast!
Feliz Navidad! Salud!!!
