RECIPE: Cait’s First Coquito

Cait’s first attempt at Coquito. A work in progress, we may need to tweak the recipe in the future (more alcohol, etc.).

  • 1 1/2 cups dark spiced rum
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • 1 (14 oz) can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 (15 oz) can cream of coconut 
  • 1 (13.5 oz) can coconut milk
  • 4 oz evaporated milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Soak cinnamon overnight in dark rum in a pitcher or jar large enough to hold your entire batch of Coquito.  (We used a 64oz beer growler)

After your cinnamon sticks have soaked overnight, combine all other ingredients in blender.  Pulse until blended thoroughly.  Add to rum mixture and stir or shake until fully combined. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours. Shake before serving.  Stores for up to 30 days in the fridge.

Episode 005 – Christmas Special 2020

Episode Notes

Holiday tidings to you all! Once upon a time, it was traditional to gather family and friends together on Christmas Eve and share tales of ghosts and spirits to scare and delight each other, a tradition that sorely needs to make a come back in our opinion!

So in this special episode, join Nick and Cait for a classic Victorian Christmas Eve, where we chill the air with tales of ghostly fur trappers, haunted hot springs, and a ghost named ‘Daddy’. It’s a double-length episode! That means Cait runs out of alcohol, Nick does NOT, and chaos and over-sharing ensue.

Unfortunately, the Tom & Jerry Batter talked about in this episode didn’t come together in time to have the recipe published along-side the episode (stay tuned, we WILL post it in the future). But, being the holidays, we’ve included some additional recipes (not always of the drink variety!) to make up for the loss, as well as because, hey, it’s Christmas!
