Coquito for Puerto Rico
The Daily Dish and The Dish & Dram present “Coquito for Puerto Rico,” a boozy Puerto Rican eggnog that will be served from December 1st through Three Kings Day (January 6).
Zena Polin, co-owner, spent eight years living and working in Puerto Rico. The holiday season reminds her of her eating and dining adventures on the “Island of Enchantment.” Coquito, a combination of cream of coconut, evaporated milk, condensed milk, vanilla, nutmeg and, of course, rum is a favorite holiday cocktail, often drank at friends’ homes when singing Christmas carols, known as "parrandas." They serve Don Q rum, which has been made in Puerto Rico for 150 years.
The cocktail is $10, and $1 of every cocktail sold will be donated to a fund to help Hurricane victims.
