In time for the holiday season, Bacardí Rum has announced the release of Bacardí Coquito.
This is a ready-to-drink coquito cocktail — a classic Puerto Rican holiday libation. Simply pour over ice and serve.
Following the traditional recipe, Bacardí Coquito combines Bacardí Superior white rum with toasted spices, coconut cream, vanilla and cinnamon to create a creamy, festive drink that tastes like eggnog on a tropical vacation, the company says.
This holiday bevvy can also make for a tropical-flavored dessert. Coming this December, Bacardí will partner with a local New York bakery, Brooklyn Cupcake, to offer a limited-edition Bacardí Coquito Cupcake in celebration of the most wonderful time of the year. Infused with Bacardí Coquito, this special rum-inspired cupcake will be available to coquito lovers in both the NYC area and across the U.S. via Goldbelly.com.
Bacardí Coquito is now available for a suggested retail price of $17.99 per 750-ml. bottle on Drizly and at liquor stores across the country.
