Ponche crema is a Venezuelan cream-based liqueur. Recipes vary depending on the region, but main ingredients typically include milk, eggs, sugar, rum, and other minor ingredients such as vanilla, nutmeg, cinnamon, and lemon rind. A variant type is prepared with concentrated liquid coffee or instant coffee powder. However, most references to the Ponche Crema name aim at a traditional commercial product, available since 1900, whose recipe and manufacturing process are famously concealed. Ponche crema is a beverage traditionally served in Venezuela during Christmas time, much as eggnog is in the United States. It is usually served chilled, in small cups, either as an aperitif or a pousse-cafe.
