ORLANDO, Fla. – Certain flavors can only be associated with the holidays, and Kelly’s Homemade Ice Cream is churning up plenty of them throughout the month of December.

Flavors such as Ginger Snap, Candy Cane and Hot Cocoa are returning to the freezer, and for the shop’s newest flavor, owner Kelly Seidl had some help.

“Coquito was inspired by members of our staff,” Seidl said.

Coquito — which means “little coconut” in Spanish — originated in Puerto Rico. Instead of doing the familiar cocktail, just add a couple scoops of coquito ice cream into a blender, add rum, and you’ve got yourself a thicker version of the holiday drink.
