Coquito is a favorite holiday tradition in Puerto Rico – but Chocolate Coquito is a yummy twist. Much like an egg nog but without the egg and full of yummy coconut goodness. What pairs better with coconut than chocolate? Not much! This recipe is a traditional coquito that has been made chocolate. It is perfect to be served as an after-dinner drink, perhaps in a shot glass, depending on how much rum was put in it. This recipe will hold up well refrigerated and can last throughout the entire holiday season. This is one of our favorite Puerto Rico holiday cocktail recipes!
