Traditional Puerto Rican eggnog serves as flavor inspiration
Implications - Coquito, a traditional holiday drink hailing from Puerto Rico, is increasingly serving as flavor inspiration for food and beverage products seeking a touch of festive flair. Similar to eggnog, coconut-based beverage holds nostalgic elements for those who grew up drinking the beverage over the holidays. Seeing this beverage grow in popularity in mainland United States speaks to the increased appetite both brands and consumers have for consuming culturally-inspired flavors driven by human migration.
