Boil the cinnamon sticks in the water. Take the sticks out when the water is yellow and has the smell and taste of cinnamon.
Add the evaporated milk, condensed milk and egg yolks and cook at low temperature. While it's cooking stir to avoid it sticking to the bottom of the pot.
When it is boiling for a few minutes, add the cream of coconut and rum. Stir well and take off the burner.
Let it cool and it will be ready.
Keep it in the refrigerator and it will last for a very long time.

First you don't add water to coquito, then you do not have to cook the ingredients, and along with cinnamon sticks also boil 10 cloves to make it even better. It also taste better with coconut milk instead of cream of coconut. Try it this way, you will love it!!

Our final mixture turned out to be a bit chunky. However, after running it through the blender, the final product is silky and smooth.

This is a good coquito recipe ... I always add 1 tablespoon vanilla extract to the coquito and it's also quick and easy for the holidays .

COCONUT MILK? Don't think so...

If you can get Coco Seco will be the best way of getting coconut milk, which is the main ingredient.
Please use Bacardi to give it a Boriqua taste to it, use a bit of nutmeg(not to much, please
boil the cinamon and cloves to get a concentrated flavor.) Once you have this ingredients do the following. Put 2 egg yolks in blender, add the hot liquid of the cloves and cinnamons, add a touch of vanilla , a pinch of salt to increase the sweet flavor, add some coconut cream, evaporated milk will work well. If you like it to be less heavy add some regular milk so but please do not add water since then you will loose some of the creamyness of the drink.
Drink in a glass container and add orange juice in... let it rest in the refrigerator for 3 hours,
when ready to serve please sprinkle some cinamon and nutmeg on top of the cup.
