In the Dominican Republic, a creamy Ponche is synonymous with celebration, and a must during this Christmas season and beyond; every day is perfect to enjoy its tasty and creamy flavor. Our version of Tropical Ponche has traditional flavors, like nutmeg, cinnamon and cloves, but we elevate its flavor further by adding the delicious touch of GOYA® Coconut Milk, and of course, rum. Prepare it at home and enjoy it as a family or as a sweet gift this holiday season.
