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!

Recipe: The Brown Derby

The Brown Derby cocktail is the featured drink of “Episode 38: Why are white people”. I ended up really enjoying this drink, even if it took a little bit to grow on me. I also made a variation with gin that was DELISH.

The Brown Derby 

  • 1.5 oz Corn Whiskey 
  • 1 oz Grapefruit Juice 
  • .5 oz Rosemary Honey Syrup* 
  • Garnish: Rosemary sprig and grapefruit twist 

Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake 8-10 seconds or until the shaker is frosty.  

Strain in glass over fresh ice.  

*Rosemary and Honey Simple Syrup 

  • 1 c Water 
  • 1 c Honey 
  • Bunch of Fresh Rosemary 

Combine honey and water in a pot over medium heat and stir to dissolve honey.  

Add the rosemary and cook over low heat for 30 minutes.  

Remove to heat and allow to cool completely before straining the mixture to remove the rosemary. Bottle and refrigerate up to 1 month.
