"Coquito has as many versions as there are Puerto Rican moms making it. Just google “best coquito recipe,” and you’ll have endless choices. Some insist it must contain eggs. In some parts of island, they call any version with egg a “ponche.” (I like an eggless “light” version from New York’s Coqui the Chef, which she shared on the James Beard award-winning podcast, the Sporkful.)"
