Jackie may not have won the #CTownCoquitoBattles, but her recipe is delicious, vegan and kid-friendly- so we HAD to share it with you!

If you are or know someone Hispanic, this season includes coquito. Coquito is a traditional drink served around this time of year that’s shared with, and sometimes sold to, family, friends and neighbors. 

Over the years, Jackie and her husband have stopped drinking alcohol and adopted a plant-based diet. They're also parents to three kids, so she decided to modify her family’s coquito recipe and make it a kid-friendly and dairy-free that still tastes very similar to the original! (Don’t worry—if you drink alcohol, you can simply add rum in).
