We Puerto Ricans love coquito, everybody else has eggnog, but we truly love our milky coconut drink with rum during the holidays. We make it, we give bottles of it as gifts, we receive bottles of it as gifts in all the variations. But what do we do with it when we have too much of it? Of course drink it is an option, but you can also divide it in plastic cups or sandwich bags and freeze it.
If you have nothing left or have never heard of this drink, here is the recipe:
2 cans evaporated milk
2 cans condensed milk
1 can coconut cream
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon cinnamon
white rum to taste
Do you remember how yummy the “limbers de leche” are? Well imagine the goodness of it with coconut and rum included. So go ahead make “limbers de coquito” and keep enjoying it the rest of the year!
