Author Notes: Coquito (which means small coconut) is a traditional holiday drink in Puerto Rico. I am Cuban but my mohter got this recipe from a Puerto Rican friend and has been making it every year for Christmas and New Years. At one point she had people wanting to buy the bottles from her. I should caution you it is a very addictive drink and not so easy on the waistline. Martica
