El nombre de Cola de Mono suena un poco raro para los que no conocen esta bebida. Aunque no se sabe exactamente el origen de este nombre tan particular, se dice según una teoría que esta bebida navideña es tan fuerte que estarás ¡de rama en rama como un mono! Otros cuentan que el nombre de esta bebida tiene que ver con el apellido de un ex presidente chileno cuyo nombre es Pedro Montt.
