Coquito Recipe from Inaru Rustaurant in San Juan Puerto Rico

While on Cayamo music cruise in January one of our ports was San Juan Puerto Rico.  We spent the day wandering the streets of Old San Juan, where Tim got a haircut from a barber.  Before heading back to the ship we stopped in at Inaru Restaurant for a cocktail.  I  had a mojito, of course!  As we arrived the staff was removing the Christmas tree from the restaurant in preparation for San Sebastian Festival coming up just after our visit.  The staff was very friendly and before we left they gave us a sample of their version of "eggnog", Coquito, which is a punch served during the holiday season.  The bartender was kind enough to share his recipe with me.  It's dangerously good, and dairy free!

3 cans cream of coconut
1 can coconut  milk
2-3 spoonfuls of condensed milk
1/2 bottle light rum
2-3 shots gold rum
2-3 shots Frangelico
grated nutmeg
1 cinnamon stick per bottle

Keeps refrigerated for up to 2 months
