  • 1/4 cup coconut milk
  • 1/8 cup sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 pinch ground cinnamon
  • 1 pinch ground nutmeg
  • 1 pinch ground cloves
  • 1/4 cup rum (I used Bacardi)


  • In a small sauce pan, stir together the coconut milk, sweetened condensed milk, cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves. Heat gently, stirring, just until bubbly.
  • Turn off the heat. Cool the milk and spice mixture, stir in the rum, transfer to a jar with a screw-type cap and chill in the fridge for a couple of hours.
  • Pour the cooled mixture into a glass. Serve the coquito chilled.
