WHAT IS COQUITO?

There’s no where in the world where Christmas is celebrated as early and for so long as in Puerto Rico.

For Puerto Ricans, Christmas starts after Thanksgiving Day.

After this holiday, Christmas continues for eight days after Epiphany Day (January 6).

We call these extra eight days ‘las octavitas’.

Therefore, don’t be surprise if ‘coquito’ is already in the minds of many Puerto Ricans.

We have to get the ‘coquito’ started because it needs some time for the drink to ‘age’ a bit.

It’s a sweet, yummy eggnog-like drink with a lot of ‘punch’!

A dear blogger friend taught me this concept.

~IN HER OWN WORDS~

“IOTD” is image of the day, a concept I came up with. I teach visual meditative therapy – or in easy terms – a mini mental holiday. For some people it is very difficult for them to get their image right. I post an image a day for people to use in their mini mental vacay. Some are serious, some are silly, and some are just beautiful!”
