Puerto Rico: Not surprisingly, rum is the liquor of choice in this version of eggnog that is made with fresh coconut juice or coconut milk.

Mexico: Created in the convent of Santa Clara, in the state of Puebla, rompope includes Mexican cinnamon and rum or grain alcohol, so it is sipped as a liqueur.

Peru: Peruvians celebrate the holidays with biblia con pisco, an eggnog made with a Peruvian brandy called pisco.
