This is Puerto Rican “egg nog”. Standard fair for Christmas in the states and New Years and 3 Kings Day in Puerto Rico. This recipe substitutes the coconut cream for raw eggs, but but 3-6 egg yolks can be used instead of the coconut cream. If you know how to properly “cook” then this is definitely more authentic and richer! This is my mom’s style – she doesn’t care for nutmeg, but it certainly works. Double the recipe and you will get almost exactly 3 liters which is perfect for those standard limoncello style glass airtight bottles.
