“This year, Coquito is a touch dryer, not as sweet, and definitely boozier -- hello 14% ABV! -- but overall I feel they're very similar.”

Coquito is back!

As the holidays roll around, there are a lot of things to look forward to. 

The copious number of catalogs you receive each day. The Hallmark Channel and its endless stream of feel-good films. And, of course, the return of Coquito.

….ohhhhh, coquito….

If you’re lucky enough to have Puerto Rican friends and family — or if you’re lucky enough to be Puerto Rican yourself — you know how wonderful this traditional holiday beverage can be.

Last year, we made it into a beer, and it was good. This year should be no exception.

“This was a really fun project, and I'm glad that the end result came out so unique and tasty.”

Coquito

It’s not a particularly well-known drink, but those of us who are lucky enough to have been introduced to it at some point in our lives are absolutely fanatical about it.

Maybe a friend’s abuela whipped some up a few Christmasses ago. Perhaps someone’s tito was well-known for making a batch around New Year’s. Or maybe you’re lucky enough to have been raised in a Puerto Rican family who brought this out every year over the holidays.

Either way, the combination of dark spiced rum, cream of coconut, sweetened condensed milk, cinnamon, and nutmeg has brought joy to countless generations of Puerto Ricans throughout the holiday season. Commonly referred to as “Puerto Rican Egg Nog”, there’s only one drink that fits this bill.

Coquito.

Ohhhh, coquito.

So creamy. So coconut-y. So spicy and so, so delicious. 

At Straight to the Pint, we firmly believe that the best way to understand and appreciate a culture is by sampling their cuisine. And at Cape May Brewing Company, we believe that the best way to honor a culture is by brewing a beer based on that cuisine.

So, this holiday season, we understand, appreciate, and honor our friends from that small Caribbean island in the only way we know how: with a beer based on their favorite holiday drink: Coquito.
