On Saturday (7.21), the elites of the drinks world donned their finest formal wear and gathered in New Orleans’ historic Orpheum Theatre…
- Base Spirit Rum
- Preparation Punch
- Flavor Holiday Flavors
- Served Mug
Coquito is the traditional Puerto Rican take on eggnog. The drink features all of the richness and baking spice that you expect from the holiday classic. However, the coconut milk provides an island (tiki if you must) element to the flavor profile and the condensed milk adds sweetness and density.
Every family on the island has their own recipe. Below, we provide a basic starter; the specs can be tweaked after you master the base.
- Beat the evaporated milk and egg yolks together over low heat for about five minutes. The mixture should thicken slightly.
- Let cool.
- Combine all ingredients into blender and pulse until thickened and frothy. If your blender can not fit all ingredients, work in batches.
- Transfer to pitcher or container and refrigerate until chilled.
- Pour into mug, garnish with nutmeg or cinnamon and serve.
