Coquito {Boozy Days of Christmas}

It’s finally time for some creamy drinks! That’s right. Christmas is not Christmas without some creamy drinks. Am I right?

Lucky for you this drink is full of coconut flavor and spiked with just a hint of rum. Apparently this drink is also called Puerto Rican eggnog but I have never heard of it until this year. How about you? Have you ever heard of Coquito before?

Now, while I don’t recommend drinking the whole pitcher yourself, I cannot beheld liable if you do. It’s that good! Plus, don’t fear that full fat coconut milk .It’s good for you and gives the drink the creaminess you will be expecting and wanting. Cheers!

    I can say with great confidence that I would like this WAY more than normal eggnog.

    I am Puerto Rican and this is the traditional holiday drink…although it says eggs in the recipe, you don’t have to use eggs. I don’t!
    It lasts longer in the fridge and won’t go bad minus the eggs.
    After all the drink is called, “COQUITO” which refers to the coconut.
    Not Eggnog, which refers to the egg.
    Just wanted to let you know that eggs are OPTIONAL for those of you who are allergic or don’t like raw eggs in your drink!
    I use my mom’s recipe and she uses creme of coconut as well as the coconut milk! It’s yummy!
    Some people add anise, which adds a very interesting flavor to the drink too!
    Thanks for sharing! Happy Holidays!
