coquito
 n.— «There was, instead, an opening-day scoop of a Caribbean gelato known as Delicioso Coco Helado, or in English, Delicious Coconut Ice Cream. With little advertising, the carts selling the ice cream, commonly called “coquito,” have become as much a part of warm-weather New York as sidewalk ice chests of beer and barefoot boys jimmying open fire hydrants.» —“For a Melting Pot, Scoops of Coconut Ice” by Anthony Ramirez New York Times Apr. 1, 2007.
