Coquito is a very traditional Puerto Rican drink, akin to eggnog that you find in the States. I am from St. Croix and we enjoy this with our own Cruzan Rum. A lovely drink for the festive season!
WOW! This is delicious. It reminds me of home. I enjoyed this recipe very much. I have done it with the raw yolks and I have done it by cooking the yolks with the evaporated milk in a double-boiler then just blending the other ingredients in the blender, both ways are delicious. Try it, you wil agree! - 26 Aug 2004 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I live in Puerto Rico and have enjoyed lots of traditional Coquito. This recipe was far too thin and milky for my taste, and though I like a good rum, there was a bit too much in this. - 24 Dec 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I have done this recipe twice and the second time used half the amount of eggs. It was still great (and healthier). - 20 Feb 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
