Goya Foods features a recipe for coquito that relies on evaporated and condensed milk that does not use eggs. Coquito is a Puerto Rican version of eggnog that features coconut.

To make the coquito recipe from Goya.com, gather 2 cans Goya evaporated milk, 1 can Coco Goya cream of coconut, 1 can Goya coconut milk and 1/2 cup Goya sweetened condensed milk. Also gather 1 teaspoon vanilla and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon for taste. To make the drink alcoholic, add 1/2 cup white rum.

To make this drink, blend all of the ingredients in a blender for one or two minutes. Pour this mixture into glass bottles, cover, and place them in the refrigerator to chill. To serve, shake the bottles and pour them into cocktail glasses. Cinnamon sticks and extra ground cinnamon on top of the drinks make good garnishes.

Other ingredients commonly used in coquito include ginger, coconut cream, lemon zest, horchata and chocolate. Instead of white rum, a flavored or spiced rum is also acceptable. Pitorro, which is a common spirit that is similar to rum made in Puerto Rico, is also good to use. If adding extra liquor to the recipe, the coquito can be served in shot glasses.
