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.

Good basics covered, but she adds an interesting secret ingredient which some don’t think needs to be added. What do you think?
An entertaining presentation which go overs the basics of how to make coquito. They explain that Coquito is a traditional Puerto Rican eggnog normally made with white rum. They also mention that it is actually a cooked process, but the version they go over skip that step. However, they note that others who tried their’s, says it taste delicious!
Here is what they say… I do not like drinks made with very strong liquor or alcohol in it. Sometimes, I do add a conservative amount of Bacardi rum to my coquito recipe that is anywhere from 1/2 cup to 3/4 cup, not more than that. Depending who I am serving this to, I may add 1 cup of rum, but for me, it is a bit strong for my taste. My coquito version of adding 3/4 cup has a noticeable amount of rum hint to it, without being too strong or overpowering. Some of my guests enjoy the taste of rum. I will make a separate batch and add 1 1/2 cups and to them it is perfect blend and rum taste.
If anyone wants more rum in their drink that I made, they can add more to their discretion. Some like to add Bacardi 151% rum, others (like me) use the Bacardi 40% to make coquito.
If you do not want any liquor in the coquito, you can omit it altogether. Eliminating the rum is great to share with minors, pregnant women and those who do not want alcohol in their drink. There is also another alternative to have rum flavored coquito by adding 1 teaspoon of rum extract and adding more, after you taste test it to your liking. Don’t go over 2 tablespoon. That amount I consider extreme that is catered only for adults.
