What is coquito called in English?
Coquito meaning “Little Coconut” in Spanish is a traditional Christmas drink that originated in Puerto Rico. The coconut-based alcoholic beverage is similar to eggnog, and is sometimes referred to as Puerto Rican Eggnog (though incorrectly, as coquito does not call for eggs).
Is coquito better than eggnog?
The differences might seem small, but they are important. Coquito, for example, usually doesn’t have sugar added (you get the sugar in the condensed milk and the cream of coconut). Eggnog has raw eggs (hence the name). Coquito may or may not have a little bit of egg in it, but it’s not the star of the show.
How is coquito different from eggnog?
Both beverages are made using milk, however, they often use different types of milk. Eggnog uses whole milk that is sweetened with sugar. Coquito uses sweetened condensed and evaporated milk. Both recipes often include festive spices like nutmeg, vanilla, cinnamon, ginger, and clove.
