Rich & creamy rompope to celebrate National Eggnog Day!

Querida amiga: Merry Christmas! For me, Christmas is the most beautiful night of the year. It's a night of hope for the coming of our Redeemer. It's all about family, joy, children, and laughter and of course food. It's also National Eggnog Day, and to celebrate, I bring you this creamy rompope so popular in Mexico, Costa Rica and El Salvador.

Today's recipe has a special twist: it's made with coconut cream. It's a "cousin" of the Puerto Rican coquito and is equally related to the Central American rum popo, the Venezuelan ponche crema and the American eggnog. Did I say eggnog? By the way Happy Eggnog Day!

Hope you like the recipe.
