Do you know the only thing that's better than yesterday's traditional Puerto Rican pernil? This absolutely delicious recipe for Puerto Rican coquito

Okay, I swear I'm not JUST going to include Puerto Rican recipes for our 12 Days of Christmas recipes series but I couldn't let you guys miss out on this one.

The traditional coquito recipe in the video below is made with egg yolks, rum, coconut milk, coconut cream, sweet condensed milk, cinnamon, nutmet and cloves.

It's a recipe that you'll just absolutely love. Just don't serve it to the kids, haha.
