Alcoholic drinks: Coquito

Coquito = Puerto Rican eggnog

Coquito is a Christmas drink that originated in Pueto Rico and is similar to eggnog. Coquito means little coconut in Spanish and as you can see, this recipe is loaded with coconut flavor!

A friend of mine served this during the Holiday season several years ago and I fell in love… so much that I had to have her recipe.

Not only do I make this during the Holidays, I make it any time I have a taste for it.

Coquito recipe
  • 1 1/2 cups rum
  • 1 can cream of coconut
  • 1 cup evaporated milk
  • 1/2 can coconut milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp vanilla

Mix all ingredients together in a blender.

Serve over ice.

Refrigerate leftovers and drink within several days.


Coquito is best served cold. Refrigerate before serving if time permit, otherwise serve over ice..

Top with grated nutmeg for an extra spicy treat. Top with a dollop of fresh whipped cream for more creaminess.
