Coquito con Nutella (Puerto Rican Holiday-drink)

So the other day I was visiting a friend and between one thing and the other we decided to make some "Coquito" which is basically the latin eggnog (but this time egg-less). Poorly described, I know, but just to give you an idea. I already knew the drink, only this time she said: "coquito con nutella".

The first time I tried coquito was at my friend Sabrina's house. It has been a couple of years since, but I was immediately sold, and from that moment on I have included it into my holiday-repertoire.

Anyways, before I keep rambling about it and lose track of what I need to be telling you (bare with me, please!).

This year I was introduced by a native Puerto Rican to the nutella version of coquito. Yes, you read it right! You can also drink nutella. Before you judge us, just remember this, this may happen only once a year and not even in a big glass...keep it in mind as you read along! Think of it as a chocolate-shake... Yes, I will also keep repeating that to myself!

This recipe yields about 2 1/2 liters of coquito.


1 cup of Nutella

2 can of coconut milk

1 can of coconut cream

1 can of evaporated milk

1 can of condensed milk

Vanilla beans (as many as necessary)

1 table spoon of vanilla extract

1 tablespoon of ginger zest

1 tablespoon of ground cinnamon

1 teaspoon of ground star anis

1 teaspoon of ground nutmeg

2 cups of Rum (optional)

1 cup of ground coconut (for topping)


1. Put all ingredients except the ground coconut into a bleder cup and mix all together.

2. Pour the misture into bottles and keep in the fridge.

3. Serve cold, top it with ground coconut and cut the middle of a vanilla bean and use it as drink-stirrer.


1. The rum can be actually any liquor of your choice, make it your own.
