Tropical Eggnog

Tropical Eggnog

In TOW Phoebe’s Dad, Monica and Rachel throw a Christmas party — but right before the guests are set to arrive, Ross breaks the radiator knob, sending the apartment’s temperature soaring up to tropical levels.

Ever the trooper, Monica says they’ll just make it a theme party, and they do their best. Rachel invites arriving guests to put their coats, sweaters, pants, and shirts in the bedroom, and Monica serves ice cubes as an appetizer.

We decided to take this tropical Christmas theme and put a tropical spin on eggnog (Monica even serves some at the party, though we can’t imagine it stood up well to the sweltering temperatures). We took a coquito recipe and tweaked it a bit. Heather’s version is 1 to 2 servings, whereas Elizabeth’s is a pitcher-ish portion.

Heather’s Tropical Eggnog (Serves 1 to 2)

  • 4 oz evaporated milk

  • 3 oz toasted coconut rum

  • 3 oz coconut milk (can)

  • 2.5 oz sweetened condensed

  • ½ tsp vanilla extract

  • ¼ tsp ground cinnamon

  • ¼ tsp freshly grated nutmeg

Combine everything in a blender and blend until well combined. Make the night before to let it get extra tropical. Serve topped with more freshly grated nutmeg.
