Don’t Drink Cheap Spiked Eggnog – Make Coquito

How many times do you pick up a bottle of spiked eggnog from the grocery store on the way to a New Year’s eve party. Was it as good as you hoped? That’s the reason for making Coquito. This is a Puerto Rican take on eggnog and is out of this world. Enjoy and Happy Holidays!

Puerto Rican Coquito

My family had the opportunity to live and work on St. Croix in the US Virgin Islands for about 8 years. St. Croix had a fairly large population from Puerto Rico. They brought with them the incredible drink called Conquito which is basically a Puerto Rican Eggnog. However, this version does not include eggs. This video will show you how to make Coquito yourself. Enjoy!
