This is the version of Eggnog that I prefer during the holiday. The rum is to taste but I prefer to use a bit more with my recipe. ;-)

I'm going to whip up a batch of this for Christmas Eve and I'm not sure if I can wait til Christmas Eve! I am not an eggnog fan at all and this is often called Puerto Rican Egg Nog but, to me, it tastes MUCH better. The buzz on this one is a creeper. By the time you get to filling your second glass and thinking to yourself, is there really rum in here because I can't taste BOOM! It hits you. So, take your time and enjoy yourself. Best served cool with a group of friends or family around a fire, …

Wiki

Coquito is an eggnog-like alcoholic beverage that is traditionally served in Puerto Rico. Coquito is made with rum, coconut milk, coconut cream, sweet condensed milk, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves. The drink is commonly associated with the Christmas holidays, where it is traditionally served along other holiday food.

Variations of the drink include egg yolks, ginger, ground nuts, vanilla and evaporated milk; these ingredients are not required but are used to make the taste sweeter. Coquito is served in shot glasses or small cups and it is usually sprinkled with grated nutmeg.

El Museo del Barrio in New York City hosts a very popular annual Coquito Tasting Contest founded by Debbie Quinones during the month of December.
