My old friend Milagros made this the first time for me, seems like a hundred years ago. Her name means miracles and I always considered this stuff a definite miracle. I often make this for no special reason and leave the alcohol out of it for my grandkids, they love it.
6vanilla extract and ground cinnamon. Blend on high until mixture is well combined, 1-2 minutes.
7Pour coconut mixture into glass bottles; cover. Transfer to refrigerator. Chill until cold
8To serve, pour coquito into small serving glasses. Garnish with ground cinnamon and cinnamon sticks, if desired.
9*note* These days with the different flavors of rum you can change the coquito as you please from pineapple rum to spiced rum or coconut rum. Also this recipe never had eggs in it but you could certainly add a couple of beaten eggs but with the salmonella scare I would probably buy the cartons of safe eggs.
