As mentioned last Friday, The Bronx Museum of Art had a Coquito Night with LIVE ART!
20131203-124850.jpgI must say it was truly a great event with music, wine, beer and a friendly vibe from everyone who attended.

There were four artists who painted in front of a live audience. At the end of the event, the audience decided who had the winning art piece based on the amount of claps the artist received. Each piece had a unique story. The winning painting belonged to Ariel. The painting consisted of a woman with a tree growing out of her hair. The painting had multiple symbolism. The woman in the painting had the city of New York on her left arm, which included the Empire State building and the Twin Towers. In the center of the tree there is a heart symbolizing life.

If you answered no, you are probably wondering what am I talking about?

Coquito is a Puerto Rican version of eggnog with liquor. The term “coquito” comes from rum with coconut.

Coco is Spanish for coconut. Coquito’s are very popular for the holiday as is eggnog in all American Homes.

The drink is sweet and delicious with a kick to it. 

Another drink similar to coquitos is SKY JUICE. Sky Juice is a Bahamian drink which also consists of alcohol (gin) and coconut.

We would love for you all to experience this delicious drink with us.

Join us today at: The Bronx Museum to indulge in some coquito.

 The event is FREE and open to all. No tickets or reservations required.

A live panting competition will be happening at the event. Come happy with your painting and drinking hand ready! -CV
