Easiest Coquito Ever

4.0
(1)

Coquito is a Puerto Rican eggnog. I make mine with raw eggs, and, as for the rest of the ingredients, most come out of the pantry. I usually mix up a double batch of this to sip all through the holidays. Also, don't try to hide cheap rum in this drink. Cheap rum will curdle the milk.

Yield:
8 cups

Ingredients

  • 1 (14 ounce) can coconut milk

  • 1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk

  • 1 (12 ounce) can evaporated milk

  • ½ (15 ounce) can cream of coconut

  • 2 egg yolks

  • 1 cinnamon stick

  • 4 fluid ounces white rum (such as Bacardi®), or to taste

Directions

  1. Combine coconut milk, condensed milk, evaporated milk, cream of coconut, egg yolks, and cinnamon stick in a blender; blend until cinnamon stick is broken into tiny bits.

  2. Pour rum into a clean bottle. Add the milk and egg mixture and shake the bottle vigorously. Refrigerate; the coquito will thicken as it cools.

Tips

Cook's Notes:

You can use ground cinnamon but your drink will be a dull brown.

You can use up to 8 fluid ounces rum.

I prefer to store this in something with a wide mouth, even though typically you might see coquito in empty soda bottles or milk jugs. I find that the thickened drink is hard to pour from bottles with small openings.

Editor's Note:

This recipe contains raw egg. We recommend that pregnant women, young children, the elderly, and the infirm do not consume raw egg. Learn more about egg safety from our article, How to Make Your Eggs Safe.
