The Coquito Cocktail is a popular holiday drink but is good enough to keep in rotation throughout the year. If you love eggnog, this cocktail is very similar to that buttery, rich flavor you’ve come to expect.
Coquito means “Little Coconut” in Spanish and is a traditional Christmas cocktail which is basically a Puerto Rican Eggnog. If rum cocktails with a hint of sweetness rank high on your list, this recipe will be a perfect one to add to the menu.
We can all give thanks to the Puerto Rican culture for this contribution to the world of cocktails because this is truly an awesome drink. This cocktail is really simple to create and well worth the trip to you locate liquor store to gather all of the necessary ingredients.
It not only tastes great but you can have fun making it! Here are a few additional ingredients you can add to your coquito:
- Fresh Grated Cinnamon
- Cinnamon Sticks
- Whipped Cream
When hosting family and friends during the holidays this Cool Coquito Cocktail is a great conversation starter. I love eggnog and I have moved this cocktail to the top of my favorites. I hope you enjoy this one as much as I do. WEPA!Print
