eggnog egg nog

Coquito is a Spanish version of the traditional Egg Nog.. very popular in Latin households. Mostly made during the Holiday's.. this Eggnog is made in many different variations and also has the option of adding rum. 

My Family Recipe:

5 Cinnamon Sticks
10 Whole Cloves
1 Cup of Water
5 Egg Yolks
2 Cans of Evaporated Milk
1 Can of Sweetened Condensed Milk
1 Can of Cream of Coconut
1-2 Cups of Rum (Bacardi)
Empty and Clean Liquor Bottles

In a pot, boil one cup of water with 5 cinnamon sticks and 10 cloves. Drain, let cool and set liquid aside. (Keep Cinnamon sticks for later use)

Crack 5 eggs in a bowl, then add to blender along with sweetened condensed milk, evaporated milk, cream of coconut, rum, and cinnamon and clove water. Blend. 

Feel free to add less rum or more rum.. it's your preference.

Use a funnel to pour the coquito into a clean liquor bottle. I actually use the cinnamon sticks I boiled earlier and add them to the bottle to add more flavor but that is completely optional. 

Put in the fridge for a few hours and enjoy!

In the video I accidentally used whole eggs instead of egg yolks. It still came out just as good :)
