"Coquito is a Puerto Rican eggnog. I make mine with raw eggs, and, as for the rest of the ingredients, most come out of the pantry. I usually mix up a double batch of this to sip all through the holidays. Also, don't try to hide cheap rum in this drink. Cheap rum will curdle the milk."
You can use ground cinnamon but your drink will be a dull brown.
You can use up to 8 fluid ounces rum.
I prefer to store this in something with a wide mouth, even though typically you might see coquito in empty soda bottles or milk jugs. I find that the thickened drink is hard to pour from bottles with small openings.
