1 (8.75-oz.) can cream of coconut
1 lemon rind strip
1 star anise pod
1 teaspoon whole cloves
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger

Amaretto liqueur (optional)
Bring milk, coconut milk, cream of coconut, lemon rind strip, star anise, cloves, ginger, and cardamom to a simmer in a saucepan over medium heat, stirring often. Strain into a heatproof pitcher. If desired, stir in 2 Tbsp. amaretto liqueur per 1 cup punch just before serving.
