  1. Combine milk, cloves, 1/2 teaspoon vanilla, and cinnamon in a saucepan, and heat over lowest setting until boiling, about 5 minutes.

Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, for 3 minutes or until thick. Do not allow mixture to boil. Strain to remove cloves, and let cool for about an hour.
  3. Stir in rum, cream, 2 tsp vanilla, and nutmeg. Refrigerate overnight before serving.
