When you find yourself in need of a boozy pick-me-up this holiday season, Cuvée Coquito could be just what you’re looking for.
Coquito translates to "Little Coconut” and is a traditional Christmas drink that originated in Puerto Rico and can be found all throughout the Caribbean. It is similar to eggnog, but the coconut base gives it a tasty twist. When mixed with coffee, cold brew or hot, it’s a seriously delicious combination!
