Cola De Mono (Tail of the Monkey)

READY IN: 2hrs 5mins
Recipe by Missy Wombat

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.
