Really good recipe. I use this recipe when I have the time, but I have since found a pre-mixed Coquito called Mi Abuela that is extremely close to homemade. I bought it at Big 3 Wine & Liquor in the Bronx on E. Tremont Ave. If you don't have time to make your own, or want a back up, definitely check it out. I know this may not be useful info to members of a site like "all recipes", but just wanted to share it just in case!
THIS IS A SUPERB RECIPE..IF THE INGREDIENTS ARE RIGHT. YOU SHOULD USE 1 CAN OF COCONUT MILK, 1 CAN CONDENSED MILK, 1 CAN EVAPORATED MILK, 3 EGG WHITES. SUGAR TO TASTE, CINNAMUN TO TASTE, AND WHITE BACARDI TO TASTE & IT SHOULD BE A HIT. ALSO, ALL SHOULD FIT IN THE BLENDER
I've made "Coquito" before, and I recommend for the readers to use a can coconut cream instead of the coconut milk- as the cream is much sweeter.You could also use 6 egg yolks instead, and one quart of half and half.These three basic ingredients- excluding the rum, and nutmeg/cinnamon- is all you really need.Serve over ice.(Double-up recipe if making for a large group.)
We LOVEEEE Coquito!!!! you can never have enough of it. My mom makes always makes it with cinnamon but we tried this recipe and the nutmeg is even better!!! Thanks for the recipe! and lets make Coquito all year long!!!
i tried this recipe. its not bad, but not great. being from miami i am use to authentic spanish cuisine and what not, but i have always seen my in-laws make this with cinnamon sticks... perhaps that is the difference or why it is not an outstanding recipe. the cinnamon sticks are suppose to kinda marinate and infuse into the coquito, then be strained out after a few days.
I use this eggnog as a substitue for the traditional one made with milk products. I am lactose intollerant. Make sure you use unsweetened coconut milk. A very good eggnog!
This is an awsome tasting drink!!!!
I followed the instructions as closely as possible, but mine didn't turn out. It had a grainy taste (probably from the coconut). I wouldn't try it again.
