In Haiti, the days between Christmas and January 2 (Ancestor’s Day) is a prime time for sipping krema, a sort of egg-nog crafted with condensed milk, cinnamon, and strong rum. Every family has its own recipe, but the spirit of choice is usually Rhum Barbancourt. If you’re craving something strong, sweet, spicy, and seasonal, we invite you to take part in this island tradition by mixing up your own batch of krema. Spices can be added to taste as you refine your own personal spin on the drink, but in the meantime here’s an easy recipe to get you started.

What you need:

  •  2 cups of sweetened cream of coconut
  • 2 cups of condensed milk
  • 2 cups of Rhum Barbancourt
  • 2 tablespoons of pure vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons of cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons of ground nutmeg
  • 4 teaspoons of fresh lime juice 

How to make it:

Mix all the ingredients thoroughly in a large bowl. Pour the mixture into a glass container or a glass bottle and refrigerate it until you’re ready to serve. You can also be serve it over ice. Always shake the bottle or glass container before you serve. Store in the refrigerator. This recipe should yield about six cups.
