One of the real beauties of drink recipes is that they’re very quick and easy to put together, and you still get a ton of flavor in each glass. When making coquito, there’s only a handful of ingredients you need: egg yolks, coconut milk, condensed milk, rum and various aromatic ingredients and spices. By adding just a tiny bit of ground nutmeg and vanilla extract, you can end up with a little more of a “festive flavor.” Other than that, there’s little else that you’d need to create a delicious drink like this coquito. Pair it with some lechon asado or arroz con guandules, and you’ve got one fantastic Puerto Rican Christmas celebration ahead! Enjoy!
