You know it’s the holidays when the coquito makes an appearance. Coquito is a traditional Puerto Rican beverage similar to Mexico’s Rompope or America’s eggnog that is served throughout the holidays. Made with various milks (condensed, coconut and evaporated), eggs, vanilla extract and spices like cinnamon and nutmeg Coquito is often spiked with rum.
Today I am adding coquito to cupcakes to create a festive coconut cupcake that would make an amazing addition to your holiday table. I added coquito not only to the batter, but also the frosting, then I topped these creamy cupcakes with plenty of toasted coconut, because you can never have enough coconut.
