Cola de Mono
Again, I'm really sorry for the lack of updates, but it's been a tough week. Anyways, here is a glass of a typical Christmas Drink in Chile. Sure, Egg nog or mulled wine are very popular in some countries, but Chile has its own typical Christmas drink suited for the time of the year. It is called "Cola de Mono" (Monkey Tail) and it has milk, coffee, cloves, whole cinnamon, and an important ingredient... Aguardiente ("Firewater", alcoholic drink which is similar to Grappa. This one is entirely homemade!). It is served cold, and with some ice.
