Coquito is a traditional Puerto Rican holiday drink that has been passed down through generations. The origins of Coquito are believed to date back to the time of the Spanish Conquistadors, who brought with them the ingredients and methods for making eggnog. Over time, the recipe evolved to include coconut milk, spices, and rum, giving it a unique tropical twist. The drink became a staple during the Christmas season in Puerto Rico and is often served at holiday gatherings and parties. Today, Coquito has gained popularity beyond Puerto Rico and is enjoyed by people all over the world. Its rich history and cultural significance make it a beloved holiday tradition for many.

Made from the sap of the coco-palm tree of Chile, this delicious drink has a unique flavor that is sure to delight your taste buds. Not only is it tasty, but it also has many uses, such as making palm honey, seeds for sweetmeats, and fiber for cordage. However, it's the perfect holiday drink that will transport you to the warm, tropical beaches of Puerto Rico. Experience a taste of the Caribbean this holiday season!
