Puerto Rican Coquito Recipe: Spread Holiday Cheer With This Cremoso Di Cocco Cocktail

Eggnog spreads a lot of holiday cheer around Christmas and the New Year. Its Puerto Rican cousin, coquito, is sweeping bars all over the country during this holiday season. Why? Because creamy coquito is made with coconut milk, cream of coconut, sweetened condensed milk, evaporated milk, rum, vanilla and spices. How could it not be delicious?

Here's my Italian version of coquito that I make often for friends and family. Serve this eggless eggnog at all your holiday get-togethers. 

Cuisine: Puerto Rican
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 0 minutes
Total Time: 5 minutes

Servings: 4 to 6


  • 1 can (14 ounces) coconut milk
  • 1 can (14 ounces) cream of coconut
  • 1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 can (12 ounces) evaporated milk
  • 1/2 cup white rum
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • cinnamon sticks, for garnish
  • Nutella, brushed inside the glass

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Place all ingredients in a blender. Whip for 30 seconds. 
  2. Place in an airtight container and allow to sit in refrigerator for 24 hours to allow flavors to come together. 
  3. Shake well before enjoying. Brush the inside of a glass with Nutella and then pour drink into it.
