Toast To The Holiday Season With The AFROHEAD Coquito Recipe By Isaac Grillo

The Coquito, a classic Puerto Rican cocktail, is traditionally enjoyed during the holiday season. 

Isaac Grillo, an AFROHEAD Rum ambassador and co-founder of Delray Beach’s Death or Glory, has taken the traditional Coquito and turned it into a lighter, easy-to-make drink. 

Serve Grillo’s drink (recipe below) as an aperitif on Christmas Eve, or at any time during December. Sip away, and taste the holidays.

Coquito 

3/4 oz. lemon juice

3/4 oz. cinnamon simple syrup

1.5 oz. coconut water

1.5 oz. Afrohead Premium Dark Aged Rum

1 egg white

Shake all ingredients vigorously to incorporate egg white. Top with grated nutmeg.
