Recipe: Disgusted with the Cold? How about a Tropical Drink?

Life is short, wear tropical shirts. – Marc Lampe

Had a hard day? Think it must be Thursday but it’s only Tuesday? Not looking forward to tomorrow? Then this is my gift to you.

Kick back with this recipe for amber rum with tropical tastes. I found some rum hanging around and decided it was time to go. The recipe I thought of first was Maple Rum Cream, but opted for something a bit more Carribbean. Coconut, pineapple and allspice were good candidates for a concoction.

This is very easy and fast to make, and smooth to the taste. It’s nice, and creamy, and not too alcoholic. A nice way to relax mid week, or any time.

The Maple Rum Cream is on my hit list for the weekend. I didn’t use all the rum… I’m also on the hunt for a boozy sarsparilla.

300 ml can sweetened condensed milk
2 eggs, or egg substitute
1 cup amber rum
