Coquito which means “little coconut” in Spanish is a traditional drink that originated in Puerto Rico and is usually made for the Thanksgiving and Christmas Holidays. The coconut-based alcoholic drink is much similar to that of Eggnog. Many people call it the “Puerto Rican Eggnog”. I personally can’t compare the two. Coquito is in a lane of it’s own and is much more satisfying, in my opinion.
There is a big difference between traditional Eggnog and that of Coquito. Traditional Eggnog is made with milk, eggs, sugar and nutmeg that is usually cooked until thick and creamy. It’s almost like you’re drinking a custard beverage. Sometimes, it is turned into an alcoholic beverage using brandy, rum or whisky. Although, there has been quite the debate over the years about whether or not Coquito should be made with egg yolks or not, like any other recipe its much more of a personal preference. I personally have never liked drinking egg yolks. Even before I transitioned to a plant-based lifestyle. I’m definitely team NO YOLKS.
The best Coquito is extra thick and creamy with a rich coconut flavor due to the coconut milk, cream of coconut, sweetened condensed milk and spices of cinnamon and nutmeg. Its best served cold and enjoyed with friends and family.

TO ORDER: This is only for LOCAL PICKUP in the NORTH JERSEY area. Coquito bottles are made to order. I usually don’t have extra bottles for purchase unless I recently made a batch. I prepare these as ordered so they will be fresh when picked up.
STORAGE: Vegan Coquito bottles MUST be refrigerated, opened or unopened. Once opened, the Coquito will last several months in the refrigerator. The Coquito likes to separate from the coconut ingredients, so before serving, be sure to shake well each time.
