Rompope – Mexican Christmas bevarage

A lovely creamy drink similar to egg-nog. Rum flavors this wonderful holiday drink.

• 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
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. Mix in the rum and serve chilled.
