This is a great holiday party recipe. It’s a fantastic alternative to the thick-as-molasses eggnog drinks for those of us who want to avoid diabetes for a little longer.
Cook time: 5 minutes
Total time: 20 minutes
6 oz. dark rum (can also be made with bourbon)
3 cups of 2% milk
1/2 cup powdered sugar
2 tsp vanilla
cinnamon and nutmeg, for garnish
Combine milk and rum in a small saucepan on medium heat. Add vanilla and powdered sugar and stir occasionally for 5 minutes. Take off heat and let sit until cool. Pour rum punch into four chilled glasses and garnish with cinnamon and nutmeg. Serve!
*Extra credit: Put tinsel on top of a cocktail straw. My old roommate Lizzie, who I miss terribly, used to do this for holiday parties and it’s as dorky as it is adorable.
