While everyone traditionally sips on holiday cocktails like eggnog (you know that creamy deliciousness in a cup) this time of year, it鈥檚 time to amp it up with a Puerto Rican twist. It鈥檚 called Coquito. It鈥檚 very similar to eggnog in consistency and taste, but it doesn鈥檛 involve egg, rather it鈥檚 mixed with coconut, evaporated milk, condensed milk and a whole lot of rum. It might sound strange (or sound like a good time), but trust us, it will be one of the most delicious drinks you will have for the season.
