El Moquito – A Christmas Cocktail

El Moquito – A Christmas Cocktail

You’ve heard of the Coquito right? The delicious Caribbean Christmas cocktail equivalent to Egg Nog? Well, I came up with a Moquito tonight, a mock Coquito because a. the combo of coconut and sweetened condensed milk sounded luscious and b. because I couldn’t be bothered with looking at another recipe for anything. !Feliz Navidad!

El Moquito

  • 1 Can Coconut Cream
  • 1 Can Sweetened Condensed Milk
  • Old Overholt Straight Rye Whiskey

Open can of coconut cream and stir to ensure the cream on top is completely incorporated with the liquid at the bottom of the can. Pour 6 ounces of the cream into a cocktail shaker with 1 ounce of sweetened condensed milk, 1 ounce of the rye whiskey and plenty of ice. Shake well and strain into a cocktail glass. !Vaya con Dios!
