On December 15th, La Famosa, the forthcoming Puerto Rican restaurant opening this coming spring in Navy Yard, will host a holiday pop-up coquito cocktail class in collaboration with Cotton & Reed at their Union Market distillery. The class, led by La Famosa’s chef and co-owner Joancarlo Parkhurst, will explore the history of coquito, a traditional Puerto Rican coconut-based Christmas cocktail. Parkhurst will demonstrate how to prepare three varieties of the popular drink: a classic version of coquito, a vegan variety of coquito, and a spicy calabaza coquito, a fun interpretation using spices and pumpkin. The $60 ticket include 3 cocktail tastes, an assortment of Puerto Rican holiday cookies and appetizers from La Famosa, one 750 ml bottle of Cotton & Reed Rum and a bottle of one of the three coquito bases.
