Coquito

Coquito is a Puerto Rican drink, equivalent to eggnog,  made of all that is delicious, pure, and beautiful on this earth. I say eggnog because it’s a drink we usually have during the holidays. However, it does not have an eggy taste at all and it’s more like a coconut liquor, creamy, thing of just justice and love. I don’t know guys! It’s wonderful! So, I came up with this recipe. My variation is partly inspired by my mother’s. You’ll love it! Try it. Shove it down all your friends’ throats!

Ingredients

15 oz of Coco Lopez (coconut cream)

14 oz of condensed milk

12 oz of evaporated milk

6 0z of milk

13 oz of coconut milk

2 tbs of vanilla extract

1 -1/2 tbs of cinnamon

12-14 oz of white rum (Don Q, Bacardi whatever you prefer)

 

1. In a blender, throw all of your ingredients together. Don’t forget to be gentle, they’re precious. You want to make sure that there are no bits of coconut from the coconut milk in the mixture. Absolutely no one likes those things in their drinks. It’s gross.

2. Once the concoction is blended, add the alcohol. I suggest you add it  bit by bit. I noticed that 12 oz is the perfect amount because it does not take away from the Coquito.  I, on the other hand,  was raised on an alcohol free version of Coquito which is just as delicious if not even more so. For the alcohol free version, just nix the alcohol from the recipe!

Feliz Navidad!
