I've just finished brewing the seasons' first batch of coquito. I decided to vary the recipe a little bit, using coconut rum instead of the usual white (sugarcane and molasses) variety. I then also added generous portions of vanilla extract, cloves, and nutmeg. I was thinking that the overall effect would be to make the alcohol content subtler, sneakier. But when I sampled the mixture, it seemed to lack an edge. So I threw in some white rum on top of the coconut stuff. That seems to be working pretty nicely.

The finished product is now cooling in the fridge.

I can almost appreciate this, at least in theory. Sounds delish if one could consume coconut. Hope you got some homemade tamales or equivalent as well!

Actually, dinner honored the other half of my heritage: baked chicken, baked sweet potatoes, and steamed asparagus. :)
