Coquito is one of our favorite Puerto Rican drinks during the holiday season.
It is the traditional Puerto Rican drink that is usually served at Christmas and New Year’s celebrations. It’s creamy, sweet, and similar to eggnog (but has no egg in it), very easy to make and so good!
1 (15-ounce) can of cream of coconut
1 (13.5oz)can of Coconut milk
1 (14-ounce) can of sweetened condensed milk
1 (12-ounce) can of evaporated milk
½ cup white rum (or you can adjust the amount of rum to suit your taste, or even leave it out)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
Ground cinnamon and cinnamon sticks
In a blender mix cream of coconut, coconut milk, sweetened condensed milk, evaporated milk, rum, vanilla extract, cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg.
Process them until they are well-mixed and then pour into a glass pitcher or bottle and cover it.
Refrigerate for at least a few hours before serving. Coquito tastes best very cold.
Shake to mix well just before serving.
Pour into a small glass and garnish with ground cinnamon and a cinnamon stick.
