It's not the holidays in Puerto Rico without a parranda and some coquito! This Puerto Rican eggnog-like cocktail typically contains coconut milk, sweetened condensed milk, evaporated milk, and rum. Although there are often variations in the recipe, coquito is typically spiced with cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves. Which spices you add is up to you! Some recipes also include eggs, depending on a family's particular recipe.
Paired with arroz con gandules, pasteles and pernil, coquito is the perfect addition to any Nochebuena celebration.
The great part about this recipe is that you can share with the kids if you wait to add the rum! Just follow the directions, adding everything but the rum to the blender, and pour half the coquito into a pitcher for the kids. Leave the other half in the blender, add a little rum, and serve the boozy remaining half to your adult guests. This recipe can be easily doubled or tripled for a large crowd, but you'll have to make it in batches in the blender.
