What is Coquito?
Coquito is the Puerto Rican version of eggnog.
It is a rich, creamy delicious coconut blend that can be made with or without alcohol and an integral part of any Puerto Rican Christmas celebration.
Traditionally we use light or dark rum.
Without a batch of Coquito in your refrigerator, a Puerto Rican Christmas has not even begun!
A common practice in Puerto Rican homes is to make enough coquito to gift to family and friends.
Store in your refrigerator and enjoy throughout the holiday season.
How long will Coquito last?
It will lasts several weeks in your refrigerator. That will make anyone happy!
Enjoy and remember to share the coconut love this holiday season! 😊
