I have never been a fan of eggnog. That is until I discovered Coquito - Puerto Rican Coconut Eggnog that has a totally different flavor and consistency and is absolutely delicious.
And I like mine a little strong... so it's dangerously delicious. But hey - its only a few times a year, right?! This year I teamed up with Blue Chair Bay for Blogtender Nation to concoct recipes with their premium blend rums, and I knew I had to make Coquito - it was PERFECT.
This Coquito recipe is egg free. There are tons of Coquito recipes that you can find with egg online that would all be great with the Blue Chair Bay Spiced Coconut Rum I am sure - but for this one - I went egg free.
I also put whipped cream on mine... because it is pretty and tastes great - even though my Puerto Rican best friend let me know that was most definitely NOT traditional... to each their own, amiright!?
It does need to chill in the fridge for a few hours though - so be sure to mix it up before your Christmas Party begins - because once you get that first taste, you are going to want to sip it all party long.
Coquito is smooth and savory, and the Blue Chair Bay Coconut Spiced Rum gave it just that perfect little extra kick to bring it all together.
- 1 12oz can evaporated milk
- 1 14oz can sweetened condensed milk
- 1 15oz can sweetened cream of coconut
- 1 14oz can coconut milk
- 3 cups Blue Chair Bay Coconut Spiced Rum
- 3 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- whipped cream (optional)
Blend all ingredients together in a large blender. If you do not have a blender large enough, you can make it in small batches and pour together into a pitcher.
Seal tightly and place in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours. Shake well and then serve ice cold straight with cinnamon topping and whipped cream if you would like.
If there are leftovers (probably not, but just

I wonder if I could take the rum out of this? I love love egg nog but don't drink the rest of the recipe looks awesome
You could take the rum at if you don’t drink
I MIGHT be willing to try this. I am also not an eggnog fan. I had a long convo with a barista at Starbucks yesterday about how even alcohol can't make us like it! But this.. I might be willing to try!

Wow this drink looks so good. I'm a huge fan of coconut!

I'm not a drinker, but I love that you've used sweetened condensed milk in your recipe! My husband and kids like egg nog - but the kind you buy near the milk!
Would you believe that I was just thinking today that I have never made REAL eggnog at home and that it is something that I should do? True story.
i LOVE Eggnog- LOVE IT, so i'm pretty sure I'd love this, too! Putting it on my Christmas drink list.
I don't drink, so I can't say I've ever had eggnog. But this looks so pretty & enticing. I'm sure it'd be a hit at any holiday party.
I've never had this before. It looks amazing.
Stephanie Keeping says
Sounds interesting. I will have to share it with a friend.

I love eggnog but this looks and sounds amazing! I am a huge coconut fan and love just about anything made with it. And a good rum...oh dreaming already 🙂
Coconut spiced rum? Where have you been all my life! I love rum and coconut, and eggnog too, so I think this could only make it even better.
I thought I was the only one that hated eggnog. However, I'll have to try this one out sometime. 🙂
Wow...Egg nog without eggs! I have to try this, it looks delicious!
