Comida Mexicana – Rompope

It’s been a while since I added anything to my Mexican cuisine section, but seeing as Christmas approaches, here is a traditional drinky. Rompope is a rum and almond flavoured egg nog type drink. I think it’s something you either love or hate! How to make it? The recipe…

INGREDIENTS: 6 cups milk 1 1/2 cups sugar 8 egg yolks 1/3 cup blanched almonds 1/2 cinnamon stick 1/2 cup to 1 cup premium rum

PREPARATION: Simmer milk and sugar until mixture is hot, but not burning. Process the almonds in a food processer until a paste forms. Whisk the paste into the milk mixture and let it cool. Beat the egg yolks until creamy, and slowly add in the milk mixture a little at a time, continually mixing slowly.
