Chilean Monkey Tail Punch
Total TimePrep: 5 min. Cook: 10 min. + chilling
The recipe as printed was a little too sweet for my taste. In my "preferred" version, I used 5 cinnamon sticks and 6 whole cloves. It simmered for 15 minutes before being put in the refrigerator to cool with the spices remaining in the liquid. When it had cooled (almost chilled), I removed the cinnamon and cloves and added the vanilla, coffee (I used double brewed coffee), and a 750ml bottle of brandy. This was then transferred to an empty gallon milk jug, and added additional milk to make a full gallon. I made a gallon for a Christmas family get together, and it disappeared in no time. This might sound a little strong to some, but the brandy is well hidden in the slightly sweet concoction.
