Every culture has its holiday traditions, and for Puerto Ricans, indulging in coquito with friends and family during this time of year is a must. The coconut-based alcoholic beverage is similar to eggnog with a Latin twist. While this rich drink was created in Puerto Rico, it has become a staple for people of all cultures over the years because of its distinct deliciousness. Locals don’t have to look far to get their hands on some coquito for their upcoming celebrations, in fact, Jersey City restaurants have taken the classic drink to new heights. From coquito-flavored ice cream to traditional-style in a bottle to vegan options, there’s something for everyone on this list!
