Coquito

Coquito may translate to little coconut, but this boozy drink is big on coconut flavor. Traditionally served around Christmas, this holiday drink originated in Puerto Rico and is made with rum, coconut milk, sweetened condensed milk and spices. It's delicious served very cold, with a dusting of fresh nutmeg on top.

One 15-ounce can cream of coconut, such as Coco Lopez

One 14-ounce can sweetened condensed milk 

One 12-ounce can evaporated milk 

1 cup unsweetened coconut milk beverage 

1/2 cup white rum 

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract 

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon 

1/4 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg, plus more for serving 

Cinnamon sticks, for serving 

Directions

  1. Put the cream of coconut, condensed milk, evaporated milk, coconut milk beverage, rum, vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg in a blender and blend until smooth, about 2 minutes. Transfer to a pitcher, cover tightly with plastic wrap and refrigerate until very cold, about 1 hour.
