I’ve never tried to make it without rum, but don’t think it would taste as good. And I definitely would not suggest a pregnant woman drink this.

TheTwinlover says:

Can i make this without rum? or can a pregnant woman drink some?

El Coquito de PR es único, nada q ver con el ‘eggnog’ americano…a mi me queda buenísimo, y a todos esos ingredientes le añado canela en polvo, y preparo un té de canela (en rajas) y listo!! Uso ron oro por el color, y al otro dia sabe mejor xq le sube el sabor al ron…y tremenda notita! Sabroso! Felicidades! ;)

you should try using less condense milk because that stuff is super sweet.

@chuito6 that’s right, my mom has made it from actual coconuts before but to do it more quickly she just buys coconut milk lol

ChucksTips says:

To lionrules17: The sweetness mentioned before comes from 2 sources, either the cream of coconut or the sweetened condensed milk. If you add water it will still be sweet, but thinner. On the video, you see she doesn’t add the entire can of the sweetened condensed milk. Next time, put a half can of the coconut and half can of the sweetened condensed milk, then adjust to taste. Sweetness is judged by the individual. Think of how many packets of sugar you use in your coffee? Hope this helps.

thank you for the video! =) Happy holidays from Chicago =)

@chuito6 I’ve heard of some people that make it this way from scratch, but know many many more that make it with the canned milk. Even 20+ years ago when I was growing up in PR, that’s the way my family members made it. I’m sure it tastes even better from scratch!

solmary13pr says:

its supose to be sweet…

ntycnboricua says:

hmmm…I don’t find it too sweet myself, but perhaps it’s just a personal preference. I don’t dilute it or add any water, you’re right. You might just have to play with the recipe to get it to your liking. Maybe use less cinnamon or only one kind of milk. Good luck!

lionrules17 says:

Need your help… I followed your recipe for coquito and it came out too sweet.. not like what I’m accustomed to. I noticed in your video you didn’t add any water, I also know you can use carnation as whole milk without diluting it with water.. but is that the reason it’s too sweet. I also tried using less cream of coconut, but that didn’t help. plz tell me what to do?!!

Never ever call it “EGGNOG”  they’re no where near the same!!!!

mindy2215 says:

Simple and delicious!!!

loreable says:

I was taught by a PRican chick how to make this and she told me to add sum egg yolks…can’t remember how many though. But it’s just like the way you made it. Looks good!

ntycnboricua says:

Si, el coquito no tiene huevo, aunque mucha gente si lo usan. Pero en si, es que la bebidas son similares y es la mas que los Americanos saben para entender. Es por la idea mas que los ingredientes que le digo el “eggnog puertorriqueño”.

ntycnboricua says:

I usually use Bacardi, but my brother prefers Don Q. Both are Puerto Rican rums.

You can just use an empty rum bottle, wine bottle, or even a milk container.

zafrabuena says:

sorry pero el coquito en version americana no se le llama eggnog ya que los ingredientes son distintos,aunque, algunos, similares mas el eggnog es a base de, huevos, leche,crema espesa, el coquito tienes OTROS INGREDIENTES MUY DISTINTOS, so el coquito sigue siendo coquito en ingles, frences, portuges,mandarin, italiado etc..

lagrimasydolor says:
