'De los hijos de mamá, yo soy el gallo pelón. Soy el que toma más ron, con más extremosidad.'
If you are from Puerto Rico, you definitely know that song. If you aren't, but you speak Spanish, you must be laughing by now.
That is definitely my favorite Puertorican holiday song. Not because it's about an alcoholic son and celebrates extreme rum drinking (our delicious national drink). But because it has a fun rhythm to it.
Now that you know my favorite Christmas song, I want to share my favorite Puertorican Holiday Drink: Coquito!
It's made with Coconut Milk and Condensed Milk. Spiced with Cinnamon, Cloves and Nutmeg. Then we add a few shots of Puertorican Rum, because rum makes the holidays more fun.
It's sweet and creamy, similar to Egg Nog in texture, but richer in flavor.
If you can't stomach raw eggs, this is the drink for you.
