Coconut Eggnog – Puerto Rico style

This is a great homemade drink to offer guests. The glasses are small and cold when serving and absolutely delicious.

  • 4 cups unsweetened coconut milk
  • 6 tbsp. sugar
  • 8 large egg yolks
  • 2 tsp. vanilla
  • 6-8 tbsp. dark or spiced rum
  • 1/2 tsp. freshly grated nutmeg

Combine the milk and sugar in a saucepan and bring to scalding.

In a medium bowl, beat the yolks with vanilla. beat 1/4 of the milk mixture into the yolks and whisk all the yolk mixture in the milk. Stirring constantly, cook over low heat until it coats the back of a spoon. Do not let this boil.

Strain in to a bowl and stir in the rum. Let stand to cool down to room temperature. Cover with plastic wrap and placeĀ  in the refrigerator until completely chilled.

Chill the glasses as well. When serving sprinkle a whisper of nutmeg on top. Enjoy!

What a wonderful way to make friends.
