Go Drink This: Coquito



The drink: “Coquito” by Dean Feddaoui 

The price: Available upon request. 

The story: In Puerto Rican culture, the frothy Coquito is the quintessential rum cocktail of the holiday season. It’s very similar to eggnog, a winter staple here on the mainland, but Coquito is distinctly Caribbean thanks to the addition of coconut cream. At Area 31, head bartender Dean Feddaoui combines the coconut with sweetened condensed milk, evaporated milk, white rum infused with vanilla beans, cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg in a 36-ounce serving that should be shared with a small group of people due to its richness. 

Where to find it: Area 31 at the Epic Hotel, 270 Biscayne Blvd. Way, Miami.
