Coquito - Delicioso Puerto Rican Eggnog

So I was just put on to this drink a few years ago. For those who don't know Coquito is the Puerto Rican eggnog and it's just DELICIOUS! It was given to me by a co-worker who said his grandmother made huge batches and served them in bottles with a little red ribbon on it. I don't know if that was traditional for them or what but the damn drink is amazing and after talking to my other spanish friends this is a popular drink made around the holidays and is best when it's homemade.
