How to mix the ingredients:

  • Mix the ingredients in a blender at a high speed.
  • Tip: Make sure the blender is covered; otherwise, it will snow in your kitchen or bar.

  • Quickly place the bottle with "coquito" in the refrigerator. It will take an hour to chill, depending on the refrigerator.

  • My recipe is for the size of a 750ML /25.36OZ glass bottle.
  • Tip: Do not freeze it! "Coquito" will turn into sticky slush. Bartenders carefully choose the type of refrigerator..."coquito" is not a beer.

  • Shake the bottle very well prior to serving in a chill glass.
  • Tip: Sip it and savor it by moving the yummy "coquito" inside your mouth before swallowing.
