Dairy-Free Coquito

Dairy-Free Coquito
I'm not a big drinker, but I do enjoy a cocktail from time to time. During the holidays, my go-to cocktail is my husband's signature coquito.

Coquito is a creamy coconut milk beverage that's made in Puerto Rico especially for the holidays. The whole essence of this drink is coconut and rum, making this rich & creamy, with hints of vanilla and cinnamon.

Original coquito recipes include condensed milk and other types of dairy milk, but we, of course, put a healthy twist and came up with our signature coquito recipe, Casa Rigi Coquito, which we now bottle and gift to our closest friends. Today, I'm happy to share the recipe so you can get your hands on some Casa Rigi Coquito as well. Enjoy!
