This is a very typical, traditional Puerto Rican drink served during the holidays. It can be made without the rum. You can add rum extract instead or leave it out altogether, will taste just as good.

Thick and rich, we loved this coquito. Coquito is a traditional Puerto Rican cocktail that's enjoyed during the holidays. It has similar flavors to eggnog (cinnamon, nutmeg, and rum) but with a coconut twist. This can easily be made for a party in a matter of minutes and refrigerated until needed. It's so good, people will think you took way longer to prepare this cocktail. Since there are raw egg yolks in this recipe, make sure to use fresh eggs. This makes a big batch of coquito. The recipe can easily be cut in half or mixed in batches if you do not have a big blender. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
