Cola de Mono: Traditional Chilean Holiday Beverage

1 Recipe Review |Rate this Recipe| 36 Saves

The literal translation of Cola de Mono is “monkey’s tail.” While the exact origin of this unusual title is unknown, one theory is that this potent Christmas drink will have you swinging like a monkey! Another story links the name to former Chilean President, Pedro Montt. Whatever its origins, you’ll enjoy toasting family and friends at the holidays—or any time of year—with this creamy creation.
