Coquito is a Puerto Rican drink that is very popular during the Holidays. It would be the Puerto Rican equivalent of eggnog, but boozier with coconut as the star of the show. It is very simple to make and makes for great gifts.

Recipe Notes

You can play with how boozy you want your coquito. Start with 14 oz of the rum and increase to your taste. I prefer Gold rum (dark) but you could use Silver (white) or spiced rum. I would stay away from flavored rums since they will change the taste greatly. If you prefer a non-alcoholic version, replace the rum for coconut milk, almond milk or even better, a mix of both. One batch yields 1.5 liters (50 oz).
