BronxMama Recipe: COQUITO!

 By: Amy Vega-Guobadia
You can’t have the holidays in a Puerto Rican home with out Coquito. Coquito is the Puerto Rican version of eggnog. When my grandmother moved to Puerto Rico three years ago, she took the recipe with her. After searching and searching for a good recipe, I found it. I changed it for the right taste.
