At New Orleans’ Compère Lapin, head bartender Abigail Gullo whips up this creamy cocktail on Thanksgiving—which also happens to be opening day at the race tracks. “This Caribbean island eggnog with coconut milk and Old New Orleans Cajun Spice rum honors our kitchen and my history of living in a Dominican neighborhood in NYC. Shout out to the Washington Heights Abuelas!”
