The holiday season just isn’t the holiday season in Puerto Rican households if there isn’t a bottle (or more) of coquito available for sharing with friends and family. Much like what eggnog represents in many homes, coquito is the holiday drink of choice in Puerto Rico. A delicious, creamy blend of coconut, spices, and rum, each coquito recipe differs from the next, with each chef adding their own touch to this holiday recipe. While there are a variety of Puerto Rican coquito recipes for you to choose from this holiday season, you’ll definitely want at least one bottle of the classic version to enjoy on Christmas and New Year’s Eve! Check out a few recipe varieties we’ve collected and see if you can choose just one!

Es que la gastronomía puertorriqueña es única y en la Navidad el coquito es esencial, que viva la tradición y la variedad de sabores.
