Coquito, Puerto Rican Egg Nog

Posted on

IT IS BEAUTIFUL OUT THERE, THOUGH.

JUST GORGEOUS.

HOME MADE GIFTS ARE SOME OF THE BEST THINGS YOU CAN RECEIVE FOR THE HOLIDAYS.

AND IT MIGHT BE JELLY, A SPECIAL LOAF OR WHAT ED AND HIS FAMILY HAND OUT GREAT HOME MADE PUERTO RICOIAN EGGNOG.

AND MAKING THIS HAS BEEN PART OF MY FAMILY FOR — SINCE I WAS A BABY.

AS FAR BACK AS I CAN REMEMBER.

[ MUSIC ] THIS IS A PUERTO RICOIAN DRINK THAT COCONUT BASED AND RUM.

MY BROTHER HAD A GREAT RECIPE AND UNFORTUNATELY HE PASSED AWAY A FEW YEARS AGO, BUT WE HAVE CONTINUED WITH HIS RECIPE.

THE EGG YOLK.

AND YOU NEED A SPOON TO GET IT GOING.

AND A CAN OF COCONUT MILK.

ONE CAN OF SWEETENED CONDENSED MILK.

HOW MUCH RUM GOES IN THIS? TWO CUPS.

TWO CUPS? YOU POUR LIKE THAT, IT SEEMS LIKE A LOT.

AND TWO CUPS OF RUM.

AND WHEN YOU LOOK AT IT LIKE THIS.

THERE'S RUM IN THERE.

[ MUSIC ] AND NOW ANYTHING WE CAN HOLD ON TO, MY DAUGHTER IS IN CONSTITUTION WITH HER UNCLE, SO IT IS AN AWESOME POSITION.

SO THIS IS JOE WHO PASSED AWAY A FEW YEARS AGO.

SO WE STARTED MAKING A DRINK AND IT WAS HIS RES ME AND WE SAID LET'S CALL IT THAT, THE THREE BROTHERS.

HERE I AM.

HERE IS MY BROTHER GEORGE HERE AND HERE IS JOE.

DO PEOPLE HOUND YOU FOR THIS EVERY YEAR? WE HAVE MANY REQUESTS.

ONCE THEY HEAR THE HOLIDAYS ARE COMING, THEY WILL TEXT MESSAGE OR SEND AN E-MAIL, WHERE IS MINE! THANK YOU TO ED, CLAUDIA, GEORGE, WHOSE HOME WE WERE AT, EDDIE, AND YOU'RE EXPERTS.

THANK YOU.

SO HOW WAS ISN'T IT? IT WAS WONDERFUL.

YEAH? THINK EGGNOG WITH COCONUT IN IT.

OKAY.

AND SO IT IS LIGHT.

IT IS WONDERFUL.

IT WAS VERY, VERY DELICIOUS.

WAS IT AS HEAVY AS EGGNOG? HEAVIER, LIGHT SUMMER.

A LITTLE LIGHTER, THINNER.

IT IS THE WAY THEY MAKE IT.

IT IS PROBABLY ALL OF THAT RUM THINNING IT OUT.

I'M NOT A HUGE FAN OF EGGNOG.

I THINK I'D LIKE THAT.

I NEED TO GET ME SOME OF THAT.

I HAVE MORE TRADITIONAL EGGNOG AT HOME AND HAVE HAD THEM SIDE BY SIDE.
