Costa Rican-Style Eggnog

Popular throughout Latin America, this holiday Costa Rican-Style Eggnog is traditionally served at Christmastime and to ring in the New Year. Generously spiked with dark rum and flavored with cinnamon and nutmeg, it is especially festive when garnished with a bit of grated coconut or a sprinkle of nutmeg. For a unique hostess gift, pour the chilled eggnog into a pretty bottle tied with a ribbon.

NOTE: Recipe can easily be doubled. More spices can be added to taste. If you like it sweeter, add more sugar.
