Best with Friends
Everytime I make it, neighbors and friends want their own bottle
I Thought It was good...........
Considering I don't like rum, but I found it to have sufficient rum, and cream of coconut along with cloves & cinnamon for flavor. However, the ginger may have been a little over the top!
Not PR coquito!!!
Unfortunately this is missing A LOT!! For starters there's no rum -which is really optional- no coconut milk, and no sweet. Check out my recipe "PuertoRican Coquito" for something a lot closer to the real thing (even here every recipe is different!!!)
Puerto Rican Rum Punch
We just made a bowl of this punch for last night's party. I had to go back to the store for more ingredients to make an other batch. Delicious!
I've made my own mix of coquito before, and this puerto rican rum punch doesn't measure up. Something seemed to be missing.
