Rich and creamy popular Puerto Rican Coconut Beverage; Coquito Cocktail is a festive drink that is shared with friends and family during the holidays.
I’m sharing one of the most decadent cocktails that I’ve ever tasted; Coquito, a traditional holiday beverage that is served in Puerto Rico! I tried this cocktail about three years ago and remembered the creamy flavor of coconut in the drink as I tasted it again while vacationing and shopping in San Juan a few weeks ago!
Alan and I were exploring the town and popped into a jewelry shop and started to chat with the sales gal about the frog that is so prevalent in Puerto Rico, the Coqui. She pulled out a tray of frog charms and other pieces only available in Puerto Rico, and then offered us drinks; Medalla (beer), Sangria or Coquito. My ears perked up when she mentioned Coquito!
