I got this recipe from my friends at La Lechera so we can all make this festive drink at home. If you want everybody to be able to have a taste of Coquito, you can leave the rum out, and it doesn’t make it any less delicious. To decorate your drink, you can use cinnamon sticks, just like you see in the picture.
