Crema de vie - Cream of life
You can use whatever brand of rum you like white or dark. I think a spiced rum adds a nice touch.
- 1 can condensed milk
- 1 can evaporated milk
- 6 egg yolks
- 2 cups sugar
- 1 cup water
- 1 tsp vanilla
- Rum - regular or spiced at least half a cup - any less isn't worth it!
In a blender, mix the two cans of milk, egg yolks and vanilla until thoroughly mixed.
When the syrup is ready, pour the egg mix into the pot and stir continuously over med-low heat.
After a minute, pour in the rum - as much as you want - the more the better, and remove from heat.
When the nog has cooled down, transfer to an empty bottle and refrigerate several hours or overnight.
I always sprinkle just a pinch of cinnamon and nutmeg into mine for an extra flavor kick.
