Coquito Recipe-Coconut Eggnog
When Christmas comes around I immediately bring out the decorations. I start gathering my ideas for what I’m making for breakfast, the desserts the traditional delicious dinner I’ll be making and the special drinks I’ll be serving. But one traditional drink that always makes the invite to my home is, Coquito.
Christmas for me truly arrives in my home when I make my first batch of Coquito (co-kee-to). It’s that time of year where certain traditions come shining through. This coquito recipe is certainly one of those traditions.
So I wanted to share one of my traditional holiday drinks with you…
Coquito is an absolutely delicious creamy coconut rum drink that is a must have and integral in any Puerto Rican Christmas celebration.
You may be asking yourself, why is she sharing a Puerto Rican eggnog recipe with us if this is a Mexican food blog? Well, I’d like to answer that for you! 😊 Yes, although this is a Mexican food blog and I love Mexican food, I also love my cultural foods and thought this would be a great time to share a version of our eggnog with you.
Plus you will see several other Latin dishes from different countries here on Mexican Appetizers and More from time to time. Yum! 😊
You can make any coquito recipe with or without alcohol, it will be just as delicious with or without. Rich, creamy and served cold, very cold. The only difference is one version warms you all up on the inside. 😊
We traditionally use light or dark rum.
With just a few ingredients you will have a delicious coconut eggnog that truly is amazing.
You can also make enough coquito for your home and extra to bottle and give as a gift to family and friends. They will love it!
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! 😊
