Our daughter Angie works along with another teacher who happens to be Puerto Rican, and the other day they were talking about how they had spent the Thanksgiving weekend.
This gal told Angie that it is an old Puerto Rican custom that they do not fix a big turkey dinner as is our custom to celebrate Thanksgiving, but they mix up lots and lots of a special egg nog drink and that they consume way too much of it and that they actually eat very lightly.
Anyway Angie was intrigued and curious about this drink, so this gal brought in a gallon sized milk container that was about half full of this egg nog. Angie brought it home and we all gave it a try. I must say that it was really delicious. We have no idea what all was in the recipe but it definitely had a distinct hint of some kind of rum. It was exceptionally good.
Angie was getting the recipe from the gal, but she and her husband flew back to Puerto Rico the other day as his father had suffered a heart attack.
So she will be getting that recipe in a few days when she returns.
(No the Egg Nog did not cause his heart attack)
I'd like to mix up a few gallons of that tasty treat to have available for Christmas eve and New Years.
