8 cups


  • 1 14 ounce can cream of coconut

  • 1 14 ounce can unsweetened coconut milk

  • 1 14 ounce can sweetened condensed milk

  • 1 12 ounce can lowfat evaporated milk

  • ¾ cup dark rum

  • 1 tablespoon vanilla

  • 2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 2 tablespoon sugar

  • Dark rum

  • Cinnamon sticks (optional)


  1. In a large blender (we used a 64-ounce blender) combine cream of coconut, coconut milk, sweetened condensed milk, evaporated milk, rum, vanilla, and 1 teaspoon cinnamon. Blend until well-combined and frothy. Transfer to a pitcher. Cover and chill 4 to 24 hours.

  2. Meanwhile, in a small bowl or shallow dish combine sugar and remaining cinnamon. Moisten the edges of 6-ounce glasses with rum or water. Dip rims in sugar mixture. Set aside until dry.

  3. Serve milk mixture in prepared glasses with cinnamon sticks, if desired. Store milk mixture covered in the refrigerator up to 1 week. Whisk before serving.
