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.
