Recipe Notes

Frequently Asked Questions:

  • How long can I store coquito? You can store coquito in an air tight container or bottles in the refrigerator for 4-6 months. The coconut fat will separate slightly or form on the top so shake the container before serving.
  • Can I store coquito in my liquor cabinet? No, this contains milk products and needs to be refrigerated.
  • Can I use the coconut milk that you buy in a carton sold in the milk cooler?  No,  this recipe uses the canned coconut milk.  The main difference between the canned coconut milk and the type sold in the carton is it has been diluted with much more water.  Coquito has a rich, thick creamy texture that the coconut milk imparts.
