¡Salud con un Coquito!

(Toast with a Coquito!)

Puerto Rican eggnog, minus the egg! Coquito translates to “little coconut,” and it’s guaranteed to start any holiday party, compliments of Art Director Ashley O’Brien’s heritage.


  • 12 oz evaporated milk
  • 2 cups cream of coconut
  • ¼ tsp cinnamon
  • ⅛ tsp nutmeg
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 ½ cups white Don Q Cristal Rum
  • Cinnamon sticks for garnish


  • Combine all ingredients into a large bowl and whisk together until well combined. 
  • Refrigerate and serve cold.


  • Make sure to use cream of coconut and not coconut cream or coconut milk. 
  • When refrigerated, this can last 4-6 months.
  • Coconut fat can solidify and create a fat cap on top. No worries! Just poke the fat cap to break and mix again. It is just the coconut fat that separated.
  • If you think 1½ cups of rum is too much, then start with 1 cup and slowly add more until it is to your liking.
  • You can also substitute your favorite rum for Don Q.
