  • 24 oz evaporated milk 2 - 12 oz cans
  • 14 oz sweet condensed milk 1 - 14 oz cans
  • 15 oz cream of coconut 1 - 15 oz cans
  • 27 13.5 oz coconut milk 2 - 13.5 oz cans
  • ½ tsp cinnamon powder
  • ¼ tsp nutmeg
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • Cinnamon sticks for garnish
  • 2 cups Barcardi white Rum.


  • Add all the ingredients together in a blender, minus the cinnamon sticks, which we save until the end to add to the bottles or glass.
  • Chill overnight, for better results or start right away. I think I’ll have it right away!


To make a non-alcoholic version substitute coconut milk for the rum and add rum extract to taste.
