About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
Since my heritage is Caribbean, I love to cook West Indian food. Latino food mirrors West Indian food, so I enjoy that as well. I also love to stir fry. I'm also into drink recipes.
My cooking tragedies
Quiche! I bombed that 14 yrs ago and yet to retry it.
Recipe Reviews 1 review
It has been a while since I've made this recipe, but it is delicious. If I make this recipe with alcohol, I use dark Bacardi or Capt. Morgan Spiced Rum, which gives the Coquito the kick that it needs. As a Caribbean American, I do not use vanilla extract; I use real vanilla. It can be purchased in any market that sells Caribbean or Latino produce/food. Tweak the amount of ground cloves and cinnamon according to your liking, and make sure to use Cream of coconut and not coconut milk. Those are two entirely different items.
