    Missy Wombat's Note:

    I found this in a Moosewood Restaurant cookbook. It is a Chilean Christmas beverage recipe and it is well named as it has the potential to have you swinging from the trees! Cook time is actually the time standing in the fridge.

      Wow! This is awesome. I held a birthday party for my roomate last week. I had too much milk in the fridge (I couldn't say no to $2.99/4 lb!!) and whip this up the day before the party. It was drained in the first hour :). I added the vanilla extract just before I put in the fridge. And, because I have a sweet tooth, I added more sugar. Thank you so much. I don't think this will ever last more than 2 weeks in the fridge.

      Aguardiente is really strong, my mum has always used a good whiskey, usually Johnny Red or something similar. We have had this since I was a child and is a Chilean family staple at Christmas along with Pan de Pascua.

      Because this recipe is from Chile, and not Mexico, it is made with Aguardiente (not tequila!). Which makes the recipe even better. Try the recipe as it should be made and you'll love it even more.
