    this seems like coquito which is a puerto rican egg nog, but it's not made with eggnog in it. You use 2 eggs or not and also add evaporated milk. I made it and it is goooood. One can of each. and you're suppose to put it in a glass bottle like the rum bottle and put it in the freezer to chill

    the reason they use eggnog is for the cocito to last a longer time before the end of the holidays using the actual egg would only last at least a week.

    My mother uses 4 egg yolks and one whole lemon instead of the eggnog.

    one of my favorite drinks...since i am from the VI. And i've never used eggs or eggnog. coconut juice and milk w/ the condensed milk and and cream of coconut is enough to make it nice and creAMY.

    Egg Nog is the base - you can use 1/2 a can of - Sweetened condensed milk (aka Magnolia , 1 can Carnation milk, and 3 egg yolks. The Egg Nog is subbing the use of having to do the hard work of beating your own eggs with carnation milk and magnolia milk.
