Coquito is a traditional Puerto Rican holiday drink. It is creamy and flavorful with hints of cinnamon. There are various ways to make coquito including using eggs, pistachios, guava, and more. However, I grew up with this version which uses Creme of Coconut instead of eggs to give the drink a creamy texture.
It is the perfect holiday drink and this recipe is more than enough to share
- 1 can coconut milk
- 1 can creme of coconut
- 2 can evaporated milk
- 1 can condensed milk
- 2 tablespoons of vanilla
- 1.5 cups of white rum
- cinnamon sticks
Mix all ingredients in a blender or stir in a pitcher. Let sit in the fridge for a day. If you save it in a jar, just shake it up a few times to let the flavors blend. Keep in the refrigerator. To serve pour and sprinkle some cinnamon on top.
NOTE: This is a STRONG drink. It is meant to be a sipping drink. Serving Size is 6 oz.
