For the annual holiday episode, Mike, Kenneth and Jess dive in to the coconut cousin to egg nog: Puerto Rico’s Coquito. Mike is joined by Shamil Velasquez, executive chef of Delaney Oyster House, to discuss Christmas in Puerto Rico and the food and drink traditions of the island. Jess Backhus joins in later for a dairy free recipe for Coquito, and recipes for cocktails that “taste like Christmas.” Kenneth brings it home with Booze News that asks the question: Can Russians stay away from alcohol for 40 days? And why is someone making wine at a water treatment plant in Alabama?
Happy holidays from Liquid Gold.
