Here is my illustration for this week Illustration Friday. The topic is Savour.
With the holiday season upon us, I was reminded of a traditional Chilean christmas drink: Cola de Mono.
My family is Chilean and every christmas, my aunt makes her traditional Cola de Mono. Mmmm... can't wait to savour this year's ration!
Here is the recipe:
1- Bring to a boil 6 cups of milk, 1 cup of sugar and 2 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
2- Dissolve 1/4 cup of instant coffee in the mix
3- Put in the fridge and let it cool down
4- Once cold, add 2 cups of aguardiente
5- serve very cold and enjoy!
By the way, Cola de mono means Monkey tail... I guess it explains the illustration
