Puerto Rican Eggnog Recipe

Puerto Rican Eggnog (called Coquito) is a creamy, dreamy coconut-y twist on what you normally think of as eggnog. There are many ways to make this drink, and traditionally, it does not include eggs, but this version does. Why? Because the eggs make the drink even creamier and richer, so you really can’t go wrong with adding a couple of egg yolks. But if that idea doesn’t appeal to you, just leave them out.

Try our eggnog cinnamon rolls, too!

Creamy Coquito Recipe

Just look at it. Doesn’t it scream Christmas? Get your blender ready, and try not to drink too much before it chills. Okay, you can try a taste or two, but I promise, it’s much better when chilled overnight.

Pour into glasses (small or big… we won’t judge), sprinkle with some fresh cinnamon, and drink up.
