Eggnog went through a number of variations over its history but the most drastic variation was when the holiday drink moved to Puerto Rico and the eggs were omitted.  You can’t quite call a drink with no eggs in it eggnog, so it is called Coquito.

This is a very easy to make recipe.  You just mix all the ingredients in a blender and chill it in the refrigerator for about an hour before serving.  It makes a delicious alternative to the traditional Christmas eggnog and a delicious drink for your New Year’s Eve party that your guests won’t forget!

Note:  The photo is one I took of eggnog, not the Coquito but they look similar.
