Leite de Onça or Jaguar’s Milk is a sweet and creamy Brazilian cocktail with a thick and smooth texture. It is made with a combination of cachaça, crème de cacao, and milk. In order to prepare it, all ingredients are typically blended, poured into a glass or a mug, then garnished with chocolate sprinkles or cinnamon, if desired.

In Brazil, there are many theories as to where Leite de Onça was created. Some say it is a mixed drink from Minas Gerais State, others say it is from the central-western region.

This classic cocktail packs a lot of power and due to its attractive presence, it is possible to drink it thinking that it is a glass of milk, but remember that it contains a lot of alcohol.
