Coquito is a Puerto Rican style eggnog that’s made with coconut milk, warm spices, and plenty of rum. It’s strong and sweet and totally festive.
Ack! It’s Christmas Eve! Which means tomorrow is Christmas Day, which is why I’m bringing you this video a day early. I’m going to keep this one short and sweet (very sweet), because I’m busy, you’re busy and no one has time to do much writing or reading today. As I put this video together, I realized it’s the very first Coley Cooks cocktail recipe to ever hit this blog. And as a blog dedicated to documenting the things I put in my body, I find that to be damn surprising. But I promise, it definitely won’t be the last!
Coquito is totally something worth celebrating (and super delicious). So cheers to our first cocktail together! Cheers to the busy holiday season! …And cheers to the fact that it’s almost over! (Did I say that? Yep, I totally did.)
Cheers to you, your family and all the friends who are basically family. Cheers to Christmas! Make it a merry one, y’all.
