My Ex called and told me she’d be in Miami for Christmas, I told her to not come without her Coquito recipe (which is known as Puerto Rican Egg Nog), she replied “which one?” So I got both out of her. The latter, more traditional recipe is excluding some of her families secret ingredients as requested per her. However, without further ado Coquito for everybody!!

2 cups Bacardi rum

1. Mix all ingredients (excluding the rum) in a large bowl. Add rum to taste.
