Coquito… yum! (Pitcher is from Crate and Barrel)
When I went to Kellie’s daughter’s birthday party (8/2) I had Coquito for the first time. Since there I was harassing her for the recipe and she gladly handed it over. I made it yesterday afternoon and it made me want to take a nap. Price said that it sneaks up on you.
You gotta give this a try. Make a batch, sit back, relax, and sip. It is cold so it is refreshing, but it does not have a heavy feel to it (or the brain freeze) like a Pina Colada. Plus it tastes like egg nog, so this gives you something like it in the non holiday months. Be sure to give it a good stir before each pour so you kick up the cinnamon.
Coquito2 Cans of Coconut Milk 1 Can of condensed Milk 1/2 can of Evaporated Milk 1 cup of Rum (Bacardi White 151) 1 teaspoon of cinnamon 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract pinch of salt
* To keep things on the lighter side I used light coconut milk, reduced fat condensed milk, and skim milk since I did not have evaporated milk at home and I was not going out yesterday!*
