Creamy, tropical coconut beverage made with spices and white rum. It is always requested at my holiday gatherings during Thanksgiving and Christmas time. Serve in glass cups and sprinkle with more cinnamon if desired. Feliz Navidad!

I love it but it works better if you boil the milks with cinnamon sticks let it cool and then blend everything together. Read More

Skipped the water doubled the recipe and only added 1 can of evaporated milk per batch. Also used 151 for rum. Tastes just like the one I used to drink growing up in PR. Read More

This is delicious. I used one can of evaporated milk increased coconut milk to 3 cans 2 cans of sweetened condensed milk and omitted the water. Kept the cinnamon and nutmeg the same as the recipe called for. Used cinnamon sticks as garnish and a sprinkle of coconut flakes on top. Great with or without rum. Enjoy. Read More
