Don’t have time to make Coquito yourself? Here’s an option … Coquito is a coconut cream rum beverage traditionally associated with the Christmas holidays in Puerto Rico. The tradition of making and drinking Coquito according to the family recipe has been around since my Abuelita’s Abuelita’s Abuelita and we take the coconut-infused beverage and its preparation quite seriously. Puerto Rico is a small island filled with pride, culture and tradition with Coquito being one of its treasured cultural stamps. It is usually served in shot glasses or small cups and is usually sprinkled with grated nutmeg or cinnamon. Although there’s not much documented on the history of the drink, what we can tell you is that our family has had a special recipe before we can even remember. There are numerous variations of the recipe but in honor of my Abuelita, “Coquito Puerto Rico®” has made it possible for everyone to enjoy all year round. We have done the blending, all you have to do is chill it, serve it and think warm, tropical thoughts. ¡Salud! Contact: 845-699-4312 for orders.
A basic recipe demonstration, although not very entertaining as it’s more of production from allrecipes.com. They say watch how to put a tropical twist on that holiday favorite, eggnog, by making a coquito. Cream of coconut (or coconut milk if you like a less sweet drink) gives the creamy beverage its taste of the tropics. Make a kid-friendly version by omitting the rum.

How to make Puerto Rican coquito, an eggnog-like drink that’s traditionally drunk and very popular during the Christmas and New Year’s Day holidays. Coquito is an alcoholic drink made with rum and coconut.
Coquito recipe 1/2 liter water 15 oz cream of coconut 12 oz evaporated milk 14 oz condensed milk 4 egg yolks 2 – 3 cinnamon sticks 1 liter white rum Boil the cinnamon sticks in the water. Take the sticks out when the water is yellow and has the smell and taste of cinnamon. Add the evaporated milk, condensed milk and egg yolks and cook at low temperature. While it’s cooking stir to avoid it sticking to the bottom of the pot. When it is boiling for a few minutes, add the cream of coconut and rum. Stir well and take off the burner. Let it cool and it will be ready. Keep it in the refrigerator and it will last for a very long time.
This is an easy version of Coquito. It’s the way I make it and everyone loves it. 1 can of Cream of coconut 1/2 can of sweetened condensed milk 1 egg yolk 1 tsp of vanilla 1/2 shot of cinnamon water 1-2 cups of Rum… depending on how strong you want it. (to measure the amount of rum I just use an empty can of cream of coconut and fill it to the rim) Start by boiling 1 cup of water with the 5-6 cinnamon sticks for 5-10 minutes and let cool. While that’s boiling go ahead and start mixing the coquito in the blender. Start by adding 1 can of cream of coconut, 1/2 can of condensed milk, 1 egg yolk, 1 tsp of vanilla, when the cinnamon water has cooled down add 1/2 shot of the cinnamon water, fill 1 empty can of the cream of coconut with white rum and pour it in the blender. Mix well for about 5-10 minutes, taste it and if it’s good, leave as is, if not then add more rum…. Let chill for a few hours or a day. serve cold!! Happy Holidays
