Coquito is similar to eggnog but without the egg, it’s a Puerto Rican holiday drink that tastes like coconut candy. Family recipes vary a bit but this one is pretty standard. If you want to serve it to kids, replace the rum with whole milk and add some non-alcoholic rum extract.
- 1 can cream of coconut (15 ounce)
- 1 can evaporated milk (12 ounce)
- 1 can of coconut milk (13 ½ ounce)
- 1 can sweetened condensed milk (14 ounce)
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
- ½ tsp. cinnamon
- ½ teaspoon grated nutmeg
- 2 cups white rum
- Grated nutmeg for an optional garnish
Pour the cream of coconut, evaporated milk, coconut milk, sweetened condensed milk, vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg in a large saucepan. Heat on medium and stir until it well blended and starts to simmer. Remove from heat, and let it sit for 30 minutes.
Add in the rum and chill. Serve cold or on the rocks with a sprinkle of nutmeg.
