How To Make Coquito

Puerto Rico sees your nog of egg, and raises you a "little coconut". This coquito is a delicious, rich and creamy alternative to your holiday nog, and I can't recommend it enough.

  • 1 14oz (415ml) can sweetened condensed milk

  • 1 12oz can (350ml) can evaporated milk

  • 3 cinnamon sticks

  • 1 tsp (2g) shaved nutmeg

  • 24oz (710ml) white rum

  1. Simmer coconut water, cinnamon sticks, and nutmeg for 20 minutes and then cool.

  2. Add spiced coconut water, cream of coconut, sweetened condensed milk, and evaporated milk to a blender

  3. Blend for 1 minute

  4. Add 4oz (120ml) coquito base and 2oz (60ml) white rum to a shaker tin with ice

  5. Shake and strain into a double rocks glass with ice

*Homemade cream of coconut

  • 2 13.5oz (400ml) cans of coconut milk

  • 1/4 cup (32g) sugar
