If you want to add a Puerto Rican kick to your Thanksgiving, you should definitely make a few bottles of coquito. What my family does is just reuse empty bottles of rum to store the coquito. Coquito is a very rich and delicious "egg nog" that has a generous amount of alcohol. My grandmother is the one who usually makes these during the holidays -- and it seems like every year the coquito gets stronger. Lol.
What You'll Need:
1 (12 oz) can evaporated milk
1 (14 oz) can sweetened condensed milk
1 (15 oz) can sweetened cream of coconut
1 14oz can coconut milk
3 cups white rum
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 cinnamon sticks
How to Make it:
1) In a blender, add all of your ingredients. Blend on high for about 2 minutes, or until it's well mixed.
2) Pour the coquito until glass or plastic bottles. Cover. Chill until it's cold enough.
3) Shake bottle and serve it up!
