Roselyn Sanchez shares her favorite holiday traditions, including a recipe for Coquito, a traditional Christmas drink from Puerto Rico and parts of the Caribbean.
Coquito meaning “Little Coconut” in Spanish is a traditional Christmas drink that originated in Puerto Rico. The coconut-based alcoholic beverage is similar to eggnog, hence it is sometimes called Puerto Rican Eggnog. As a close sister island to theUS Virgin islands it is only natural that there would be a version created with a little local love as well.
