After one sip, you’ll be piloting the big guy’s sleigh.
With Christmas only a couple days away, it wouldn’t be right to do anything but a holiday drink recipe. Last year we sipped on the Mistletoe Margarita and some Rum Nog. I’ve never been a huge fan of Egg Nog, even if you do add rum to it. Just something about it makes this pirate quiver in his boots. That’s why this year we’ll take a look at a Puerto Rican Christmas drink called the Coquito.
The Coquito has a nickname of Puerto Rican Egg Nog. Odd because there’s no nog nor egg in this holiday cocktail. Maybe it’s just the particular Coquito recipe that doesn’t have Egg Nog in it, who knows. Whatever the reason I’m glad.
