I hope that, if you celebrate, you have a very merry Christmas. If you don’t celebrate, I hope you’re enjoying a well-deserved day off work.
One of my favorite (newish) Christmas traditions is a drink Terry makes that is the “cheater’s” version of coquito, a Puerto Rican drink that is like coconut eggnog. It’s super yummy, but very rich.
Here’s the recipe:
In a charming, holiday-themed glass (or a mason jar. doesn’t really matter), combine:
2 shots coconut rum (we use Bacardi Coco), or to taste. I guess it depends on how your holiday is going.
8 oz egg nog (you can use regular egg nog or soy nog, if you’re feeling healthy and/or are vegan)
Top with whipped cream and a sprinkling of freshly ground nutmeg.
Super simple, but so tasty.
