Punch -a- Cream

This is one of the traditional Caribbean Christmas drinks. It is absolutely our favorite drink at Christmas. It's similar to eggnog but soooooooooo much better. We drink it cold (over crushed ice), not hot.

1 can evaporated milk
2 cans sweetened condensed milk
1 egg
2-3 laurel (bay) leaves
Nutmeg to taste (grated)
White rum to taste

Simmer the evaporated milk with the bay leaves for 30 min. Remove bay leaves and mix evaporated milk, condensed milk and egg in blender. Add grated nutmeg and rum (a little or a lot). Bottle, allow to cool and refrigerate. Serve over crushed ice. (Note – shake bottle before serving as the grated nutmeg tends to settle to the bottom)
This quantity should make about 2 liters (~half gallon

Are you from Trinidad originally? My Trini family make this a lot, but they calle it Ponche de Creme.
