Directions

  1. Bring water, sugar, and anise seeds to a boil in a saucepan; lower heat to medium-low. Simmer until thick and syrupy, about 10 more minutes. Remove from heat and pour through a strainer to separate the seeds out; set syrup aside to cool slightly.
  2. Beat eggs yolks in a large bowl until light yellow; add rum, condensed milk, evaporated milk, and vanilla extract. Stir in syrup mixture until mixture is smooth. Pour into decorative bottles and seal tightly. Refrigerate for at least 6 hours before drinking, the longer the better.

Delicious!

I made this, following the recipe to a T- Which I normally do the first time I make something. I have to say it's very good but too strong! I like a strong drink but a whole bottle of 151 was a bit much. Next year I will only use half of the bottle as we had to add regular egg nog to this to be able to drink it and make it through the night without passing out LOL ;) Great recipe other than that.
