A Combo – Recipe Wed & GuestBlogFrizday – whoa

24 Nov

So today is Wednesday, so you know that means we post one of our favorite recipes. However this week, we have a recipe from one of our friends J-Ho. He’s come up with this awesome recipe for Coquito – what the heck is Coquito you ask?? Well, his recipe is here just in time for the holidays…ready…ready…it’s Purto Rican Egg Nog – no I’m not kidding.

Coquito

Kteb and I have a confession to make about this recipe, neither of us are big fans of coconut. J-Ho assured us that this recipe actually doesn’t taste much like coconut. He even made it for us, but alas I am not there to partake in drinking it.

So here it is: J-Ho’s recipe for Coquito!

1 cup Coco Lopez cream of coconut
1 cup Carnation sweetened condensed milk
1 cup Carnation evaporated milk
1 cup white rum
1 cup water
3 cinnamon sticks
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
4 egg yolks, well beaten
ground cinnamon and nutmeg

Combine the coconut, condensed and evaporated milks and the rum in a blender or a food processor.  Set aside.  Boil the water with the cinnamon sticks for about five minutes.  Remove from heat and allow to cool to room temperature.  Discard the cinnamon sticks.

Combine all of the ingredients except the ground cinnamon and nutmeg and beat well in a blender or food processor in batches.  Pour eggnog into bottles and refrigerate until ready to use. Serve in your favorite glasses sprinkled with nutmeg and cinnamon!

Big thanks to J-Ho for the guest recipe. Check out his food blog here: http://pleasurecooker.com/pc/
