Coquito is an eggnog-like alcoholic beverage traditionally served in Puerto Rico. It is generally made with rum, egg yolk, coconut milk, sweet condensed milk, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves. There is a broad variety of styles, and some include different types of alcohol, chocolate, banana, and coffee, and can be made without alcohol as well. Recipes are closely guarded family secrets.
Debbie Quinones founded the International Coquito Tasting Federation more than 15 years ago to promote coquito as a culinary tradition. Coquito Masters is run by the International Coquito Tasting Federation as an annual contest that began in New York City wherein contestants from the tri-state area compete to determine the Coquito Master of the year.
