COQUITO RECIPE - Lee Chico
1 c water;
2-3 cinnamon sticks;
1/4 -1/2 tsp ground cloves;
1/4 tsp nutmeg
4 egg yolks;
14oz can sweetened condensed milk;
12 oz can evaporated milk;
15 oz can creme of coconut; (optional 15 oz can coconut milk)
Boil the spices in water a few minutes till water nice and brown, strain and let cool. In meantime combinel all the canned fluids and egg yolks, then add cooled spiced water and stir well. Bottle and refrigerate. That is the recipe for all family members.
For ADULTS add about 1 cup or to taste of Puerto Rican rum, making sure its a good quality white clear rum. This should be made several days prior to drinking as the flavors marinate best over a few days.
There are several different recipes out there some more simple than others, will shortly post another one without eggs for those leery of raw eggs in their drink.
