Ponche Crema – Ponche de Creme – The Christmas Drink

The Ponche Crema is a creamy liquor, made with egg, but you can also make it egg less using a pack of flan creme caramel. One of the best qualities of this drink is that it keep its flavour, color and consistency at room temperature. The Ponche crema is a sweet, smooth and nutritious. It can drink it alone or with cocktails.
This drink is excellent to drink it after meals like lunch or dinner. In some cold areas in Venezuela the Ponche Crema is drinking hot to keep their body warm.

The Ponche Crema is part of the Venezuelan Christmas menu, it the traditional drink for Christmas, together with the scotch and wine.

I have attached a very old picture with the most well known Ponche Crema brand name in Venezuela, since I have memory I have seen this bottle in my house and in the super market. Ponche Crema is our very own Christmas drink, with alcohol or without (for children), sweet, smooth, just right.

The very first Ponche Crema was create by Eliodoro Gonzalez  from Caracas Venezuela in 1900. The patent was given in 1904. It has been a long way from 1900 to the present, and this drink is the most traditional drink in my country and the Complejo Licorero Ponche Crema still today strong than ever and we are very proud of them.

The creator of this drink, Mr. Eliodoro Gonzalez, advice to do not refrigerate the drink, you can keep it in your cabinet, the drinks will not be altered in flavor, color or consistence. So add ice only to the portion that you will drink. Keep the bottle lay dawn and shake it before pouring.
