If you see a large man…
Who’s jolly and cute,
Wearing a beard
and a red flannel suit,
and if he is chuckling
and laughing away,
while flying around
in a miniature sleigh
with eight tiny reindeer
to pull him along,
then let’s face it…

Your eggnog is too strong!

-Henry Gibson

Eggnog has been a celebratory tradition dating back as far as the 13th century.  The first versions were blends of eggs, milk, figs, and sherry. But when it landed in the Americas, rum became the spirit of choice. This made it less expensive and available to the masses.

For a “nog” with a bit more character than the traditional American version, try the Coquito from Puerto Rico. The silky blend of coconut, vanilla, nutmeg, and cinnamon will certainly liven-up your holiday season.

• Coquito Cocktail •
1- 750ml bottle          Don Q Anejo Rum
64 oz.                         Sweetened Condensed Milk
48 oz.                         Evaporated Milk
1 tsp.                          Ground Nutmeg
2 Tbsp.                       Ground Cinnamon
2 Tbsp.                       Vanilla Extract
Method:
Combine all ingredients except rum into a saucepan on medium heat. Stir consistently until the mixture simmers.
Remove from heat and let cool, then stir in the rum.
Bottle the mixture with 1 cinnamon stick for every 32 oz.
Seal and refrigerate.
Serve over ice with a cinnamon stick garnish and top with grated nutmeg.
