Coquito

Background:

Coquito is a traditional Puerto Rican holiday drink that is often enjoyed during the Christmas season. It is similar to eggnog but with a tropical twist, as it features the flavors of coconut, rum, and spices. The word "coquito" translates to "little coconut" in Spanish, reflecting the prominent use of coconut milk in the recipe. Coquito is known for its creamy and rich texture, and it is often shared among family and friends as a festive and indulgent treat.

1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk

1 can (12 ounces) evaporated milk

1 can (13.5 ounces) coconut milk

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg

Optional: ground cinnamon or nutmeg for garnish

Steps:

In a blender, combine the sweetened condensed milk, evaporated milk, coconut milk, rum, vanilla extract, ground cinnamon, and ground nutmeg.

Blend on high speed until all the ingredients are well combined and the mixture is smooth.
