Directions

  1. Combine the coconut milk and the sugar in a saucepan and scald over medium heat.
  2. Beat the egg yolks with the vanilla. Beat in 1/2 cup of the scalded mixture into the egg yolks. Then whisk all the egg yolk mixture into the scalded mixture. Stirring mixture constantly, cook over low heat until mixture reaches a temperature of 160 degrees F (71 degrees C). The mixture should be thick enough to coat the back of a spoon. DO NOT BOIL.
  3. Strain the eggnog into a bowl. Stir in the rum and let cool to room temperature. Place plastic wrap on the surface and refrigerate until well chilled. Once chilled serve with nutmeg sprinkled on top.

THIS IS A SUPERB RECIPE..IF THE INGREDIENTS ARE RIGHT. YOU SHOULD USE 1 CAN OF COCONUT MILK, 1 CAN CONDENSED MILK, 1 CAN EVAPORATED MILK, 3 EGG WHITES. SUGAR TO TASTE, CINNAMUN TO TASTE, AND WHITE BACARDI TO TASTE & IT SHOULD BE A HIT. ALSO, ALL SHOULD FIT IN THE BLENDER

Really good recipe. I use this recipe when I have the time, but I have since found a pre-mixed Coquito called Mi Abuela that is extremely close to homemade. I bought it at Big 3 Wine & Liquor in the Bronx on E. Tremont Ave. If you don't have time to make your own, or want a back up, definitely check it out. I know this may not be useful info to members of a site like "all recipes", but just wanted to share it just in case!

I've made "Coquito" before, and I recommend for the readers to use a can coconut cream instead of the coconut milk- as the cream is much sweeter.You could also use 6 egg yolks instead, and one quart of half and half.These three basic ingredients- excluding the rum, and nutmeg/cinnamon- is all you really need.Serve over ice.(Double-up recipe if making for a large group.)
