Just in time for Three Kings Day- Have fun as Daphne Dumont, Saltina Obama Bouvier and Lola Von Miramar teach you how to make coquito, a delicious Puerto Rican Christmas beverage. Think of it as a coconut based egg nog!
Like the video? Give a drag queen a tip.
Pour the following ingredients into a blender:
• 14 oz. can of sweetened condensed milk.
• 12 oz. can of evaporated milk.
• 15 oz. can of cream of coconut
• 1 can full of white rum
• 1 tablespoon of vanilla
Once you’re done blending, place a cinnamon stick inside the rum bottle, pour the coquito mixture in and refrigerate for at least a couple of hours, but preferably up to a week, to allow the flavors to meld.
Mmm! It creamy and delicious. Don’t worry about spilling any, you can just lick it up!
Go ahead and drink it if you want to get your party started quickly. A lot of people in Puerto Rico over the holidays make these ahead of time and give them away as presents, the alcohol helps keep everything preserved in your fridge for weeks (if it lasts that long.)
