It is almost December and from now until Christmas my life goal is to be Festive AF.

Many of you don’t feel like celebrating. Guys, I get it. Millions of us are walking into uncertainty. We have no idea what will become of us past inauguration day. We must put that aside for now. Embrace this holiday season. Let the politicians do their thing. Don’t talk politics at the dinner table or over holiday drinks. Don’t focus on the President-elect’s latest tweet. In fact, stop trolling his Twitter account. Stop it. Put the phone down. Better yet – Somewhere on the interwebs is a video of a cat covered in tinsel. Find it and share the shit out of it.

We’re aiming for Festive AF. And Festive AF when you’re Latino means you coquito the smack out of e-ve-ry-thang and listen to all the Spanish Christmas music. I have my old school 80’s playlist on repeat.

Every Christmas season I take the flavors of coquito and infuse those flavors into a dessert. Just the flavors. I’ve never made coquito. Like, never. Coquito making is way too divisive. Fights break out and I have no fight left in me. Everyone thinks their coquito is the best and is ready to prove it to you. Purists come out of the woodwork, brandishing their fisted yellowed index cards containing coquito recipes passed down from abuela to abuela. They will not hesitate to say – You are doing it all wrong.

Ready to say, uh-uh – You CANNOT use canned coconut milk. Abuela used fresh coconut, grated along with her fingers. You have to be willing to bleed for coquito. Abuela did. You should too.

“Egg yolks in coquito! Abuela did it all the time! Salmonella? Pfft.”

“None of that fancy small batch artisan rum – Puerto Rican Moonshine, carajo!”

“You’re using too much ginger! Abuela doesn’t even use ginger in her coquito!”

And on and on and on. I just don’t have the energy. You fight it out. I’ll just sample everyone’s and make dessert using the concept and flavors of coquito.

Now flow with me. Let’s talk about these Coquito Marshmallows real quick.

I dig boozy marshmallows. In fact, every marshmallow made in this space has been boozy. Every single one. Boozy marshmallows are like j-ello shots for your hot chocolate.

And now they come coquito flavored.

You’re damn welcome.

Don’t be intimidated by marshmallow making. The hardest part (and it’s not hard at all) is making the booze infused sugar syrup and pouring it over the gelatin spiced with cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, cloves, and coconut flavors.

To enhance the coquito flavor, I added more coconut milk, coco lopez, and another shot of rum once the marshmallows increase in volume.

I did the right thing.

These marshmallows are delicious. They taste like coquito – Rum, coconut, warm spices. I ate about a dozen while cutting them up, which doesn’t help my pre-diabetic condition. So worth it, though. Like, YOLO and who needs all ten toes, right? These marshmallows are perfect for Christmas gift giving. No spills, no crumbs.

Make these now. Float them in your hot chocolate for a nice boozy sweet treat.
