Coquito is a word I had never heard of before. Turns out it is a delicious drink recipe that I am happy to share with you thanks to Lunchbox. This is a sponsored post but all opinions are my own. Right now Nestle and Walmart have some inviting recipes highlighted to help “Celebra Con Sabor” or Celebrate With Flavor.
I had been on the hunt for new tasty drink recipes. Since I haven’t been drinking booze much anymore, I wanted to find a unique recipe that would be tasty with or without alcohol. It will be my turn to host a girls’ night in soon and I want to be prepared to impress. This coquito is right on the money. Creamy, rich, sweet, and indulgent are just a few adjectives that I would use to describe it. It’s also not a cocktail you see served at every party, so it’s a good way to mix things up a bit.
This coquito recipe is super easy and only took about 5 minutes to whip up. I had all the ingredients in the house to make it in a flash. In fact, my sister has named it the “Quickie Coquito”. We both challenge you to say that fast…or at all.
Easy Coquito Drink Recipe
All you need are the following ingredients:
- Coconut milk
- Nestle La Lechera Sweetened Condensed Milk
- Nestle Carnation Evaporated Milk
- Ground Cinnamon
- Ground Nutmeg
- Rum (optional, for adults)
The drink tastes better really cold, so chill for about 30 minutes for the best results. I love the sweet, cinnamon flavor of this drink. It almost reminds me of my favorite ice cream in liquid form. Maybe we should make coquito ice cream?
Coquito Drink Recipe
- Put all ingredients except optional rum into a blender.

This was exactly what I had been looking for in a drink recipe. It can be enjoyed by all, with or without the booze. Mike and I devoured ours as if they were tasty milkshakes. When I have my girlfriends over, they can spice their coquitos up with some rum if they want. Either way it’s an indulgent treat. Mike has already put in a request for me to make them again on Valentine’s day.
