A Puerto Rican man told me about a holiday drink that is very much like eggnog but with added coconut. He said I could find it in Dominican and Puerto Rican Markets. Does anyone know the name of this drink and where I could find it? I would like to serve it at XMAS.
Thanks.

      i'm pretty sure you're thinking of cocquito--which is easy to remember, 'cause it sounds (and tastes) like "cookie dough." you can find it pre-mixed in some liquor stores, but the good/fresh stuff is nearly impossible to find, so i'd suggest you make it yourself:

      Coquito

      28 Ounces Coconut Milk
      2 Cups Bacardi rum
      14 Ounces Condensed milk
      4 Egg yokes
      1/2 Teaspoon Cinnamon
      Nutmeg

      Add the coconut milk or cream, condensed milk, four egg yokes, rum and the cinnamon in the blender and blend well. Pour into a bottle and refrigerate well.
      Serve in small cups and sprinkle top lightly with nutmeg.
