"Coquito" is a Puerto Rican version of Egg Nog. This traditional drink is made during the Christmas Holiday in Puerto Rico. In the original version is customary to crack a coconut open and use the fresh coconut water; it is also customary to use raw eggs, and to add rum. My version of the drink will not require raw eggs or a fresh crack coconut. You can add rum to the mixture if you don't want a virgin "coquito". My version is quick and easy and will deliver the same great taste of the traditional drink. “Coquito” makes a great Christmas gift!

Step 1: Ingredients:

2 cans cream of coconut
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 can evaporated milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon

My Mom made it once with <em>ca&ntilde;a</em> rum that has been aged for 12 years. Best <em>coquito</em> I ever had!
