1 can of condensed milk
3 to 4 canned peach halves or 8 to 10 canned peach slivers

  3. Slowly add rum as the ingredients are blending (you can increase or decrease quantity as per your taste).

Tip: For larger parties make several pitchers (keep refrigerated) and serve in a large punch bowl surrounded by ice to keep it fresh and cool throughout the evening.
