Last year I tried making my own eggnog and found out that it is delicious. This year, I have learned about Coquito, which is a Puerto Rican version of the drink made with rum and coconut milk. Yum!
The Kitchn has a post on the Coquito, which not only takes the above-mentioned coconut milk, but also uses evaporated milk and sweetened condensed milk. Apparently Puerto Ricans drink the Coquito in small doses, and I can see why now. But despite the heaviness, this drink still looks mighty tasty.
Here is the recipe from The Kitchn:
makes about 6 cups
1 15-oz can sweetened condensed milk
1 13.5-oz can light coconut milk
1 12 oz can evaporated milk
1 c white rum
4 large egg yolks
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/8 tsp freshly ground nutmeg
Place all of the ingredients in a blender and blend until frothy. Pour into a glass pitcher and refrigerate. Serve chilled with a pinch of cinnamon.
I realize some people are scared of raw eggs, so if you are, there are pasteurized eggs at the grocery store. Or do what I did and get some chickens so you never have to worry about it again.
