Holiday Coquito: Puerto Rican Coconut Nog

Aloha boozehounds, I know why you’re here. It’s the holiday season and that means time to celebrate and indulge a bit. I’m putting on my bartending hat for a minute to share my most favorite holiday drink, Coquito.

Have you all heard of Coquito? It’s a Puerto Rican holiday bevy that I would categorize as Eggnog’s hotter cousin. I first tried it at a holiday party about 6 or 7 years ago. Fast forward a few years and I have gotten into a groove with a simple recipe that always seems to please. So take a seat my friend and join me in the magical adventure that is Coquito.

Here’s all you need:

Coquito Recipie

  • 1 Can Cream of Coconut
  • 1 Can of Coconut Milk
  • 1 Can Evaporated Milk
  • 1 Can of Sweetened Condensed Milk
  • 1 1/2 Cup of White Rum
  • 1 Tsp. of Vanilla Extract
  • A Dash of Cinnamon

Combine all liquid ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. You can serve immediately over ice or chill for a couple of hours and serve it straight up. Add a dusting of cinnamon or if you wanna get super fancy, drop in a cinnamon stick. This recipe makes about 50 oz.

Easy peasy! You now know the secret to how I maintain my sanity during the holidays. Always having a glass of Coquito nearby. What’s your favorite holiday bevy? Let me know in the comments. Aloha!

    This looks so yummy! I don’t drink alcohol, but I bet this would be delicious without it too.

    I tried this a couple of years ago and it is very good. I’m not very big on egg nog so this was a great substitute.
