Recipe: Coquito (Puerto Rican Eggnog)

Recipe: Coquito (Puerto Rican Eggnog)

Coquito, also known by some as “Puerto Rican Eggnog” is the featured drink for Episode 40: Medieval Lunchables. I chose a version without eggs, which seems to be hotly debated. It was absolutely delicious so I am at peace with my choices. 🙂

Ingredients (batch): 

1 (13.5 oz) can coconut milk 

4 oz evaporated milk 

1 (14 oz) can sweetened condensed milk 

2 cups (1 15 oz can) cream of coconut (like Coco Lopez) 

1/4 tsp cinnamon 

1/8 tsp nutmeg 

1 tsp vanilla 

1 ½-2 cups Dark Rum (I used Appleton Estate Reserve Jamaican. I saw recipes with both dark or white rum. I went with a gold rum to add more flavor and a bit of funk. Would not recommend a spiced rum. This can also easily be made virgin by omitting the rum altogether and adding some rum extract for that funk.) 

Cinnamon sticks for garnish 

Directions: 

In a blender, add all the ingredients. Blend on high until mixture is well combined, 1-2 minutes. 

Strain if desired, and then transfer to a pitcher or glass bottles and chill for at least 4 hours, or until you are ready to serve. Shake or stir before serving.

Recipe: Negroni Sbagliato

Recipe: Negroni Sbagliato

The Negroni Sbagliato is the featured cocktail of Ep39: He was a ROGUE Scholar (aka St. Vincent of Saragossa). Shockingly, this is the first Campari cocktail I have tried that I actually liked!

Sbagliato means “messed up” or “mistaken” in Italian. While the exact origins of this Negroni variation are unknown, the story is that this was simply a mistake by a bartender when they added sparkling wine instead of gin.  

Ingredients: 

1 oz. Campari 

1 oz. Sweet Vermouth 

1 oz. Sparkling Wine of your choice 

Directions:

Add Campari and Sweet Vermouth to a glass with ice. Top with sparkling wine. That’s it!  

Enjoy!
