Coquito means little coconut in Spanish. No Es De Abuela’s basically means This is not your grandma’s recipe. Coquito is a drink from the beautiful island of Puerto Rico typically reserved for the Christmas holiday. We want to share it with you, and summer is the perfect time.
More than five years ago, Luz Nazario, founder and creator of NEDA’s Coquito decided to make some game changing moves that Christmas as funds ran low, she needed to do something quick to tie the family over till she returned to work. Thus, using the ingredients already at home, not ordinary and not from Abuela. Luz knew how to make coquito but wanted something different. After playing around with and tweaking the recipe she arrived at No Es De Abuela’s Coquito.
