It would not be Christmas for me without coquito; aka Puerto Rican egg nog. It is very similar to traditional egg nog, but the addition of cream of coconut gives this drink its distinctive flavor. Coquito is very rich so it is to be sipped. It's almost like liquid dessert. So tasty. Every year I make a few bottles and give them out as gifts.
My recipe is super simple:
1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
1 (15-ounce) can cream of coconut
1 (12-ounce) can evaporated milk
1 - 1 1/2 cups of white Puerto Rican Rum
1 tsp vanilla extract
a couple sprinkles of cinnamon
Blend all ingredients in a blender and chill for at least two hours. Serve in small glasses with a cinnamon stick or a sprinkle of cinnamon on top.
