If you plan to commemorate 2014 at home on New Year's Eve, or enjoy a cocktail before hitting the town, we've got two seasonal adult beverages fit for both celebration styles.
The first recipe, which Nestlé El Mejor Nido shared with CL, allows you to indulge in the traditional Puerto Rican delicacy that is coquito. Though mixing your favorite rum into the drink isn't mandatory, we highly recommend it. And the second cocktail formula from Herradura unites tequila, coffee liqueur and more to create a buzz-worthy beverage.
Get ready to shout "Happy New Year!" with either in hand.
2 cups coconut milk
1 cup Nestlé La Lechera Sweetened Condensed Milk
1 cup Nestlé Carnation Evaporated Milk
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
Place coconut milk, sweetened condensed milk, evaporated milk, cinnamon and nutmeg in blender; cover. Blend until combined.
Refrigerate for 1 hour or until cold. Serve cold, garnished with a sprinkle of cinnamon, if desired.
1 1/2 ounces Herradura Añejo
1/2 ounce coffee liqueur
1 1/2 ounces espresso
1/2 ounce simple syrup
1 1/2 ounces heavy cream
Place all ingredients, excluding the heavy cream, into a cocktail shaker filled with cubed ice. Shake hard and strain over ice in to a chilled coupe glass.
In a separate shaker, fill with the heavy cream and cubed ice. Shake hard to aerate, then pour carefully over a bar spoon to layer the cream over the coffee. Garnish with three coffee beans.
