This is our Mexican version of eggnog. It's also called "rompope". Enjoy.


4 egg yolks
6 cups of milk (2% or whole for creamier taste)
1 cup of sugar
1/2 cup of almonds
rum as desired


Soak the almonds in boiling water and peel them. Liquify the almonds in a little milk until smooth. Boil the milk and add the sugar and liquified almonds. Stir constantly with a wooden spoon or spatula until thickened. Remove from heat. Whip the egg yolks with the rum and add them gradually, stirring constantly, until well mixed with the milk. Chill and serve in a glass container.

Of course you can omit the almonds and substitute for nutmeg and vanilla extract for the traditional American flavor.

If you have much, give of your wealth. If you have little, give of your heart. - Arab proverb
