In certain parts of the country – like, Spanish Harlem in New York – eggnog is forgone in favor of Coquito, a cinammony Puerto Rican take on the Christmas cocktail. The recipe doesn’t require you to risk your digestive health by ingesting raw egg yolks. Instead, Coquito gets its creaminess from coconut milk, evaporated milk and sweetened condensed milk.

Lynnette Marrero is president of LUPEC (Ladies United for the Preservation of Endangered Cocktails) and consultant for Drinksat6, shares her recipe for it here.
