Hot Coconut – an alternative to mulled wine


We’ve been getting tired of the mulled wine-tea-hot chocolate trinity… Fortunately, we discovered something called ‘Burning Coconut’ in one of the Christmas Markets of Munich. ¡¡A heavenly taste, really!! To enjoy it at home  (beneath a blanket & with a good movie) – and to spare the 4€/cup – we came up with a recipe that will keep you warm in the coldest winter months!


Coconut Reinterpreted

Coconut Reinterpreted

Ingredients for 2: 

  • 2 cups of coconut milk
  • 3 tbsp of sugar (coconut flower)
  • 2 shots (about 1/4 cup) of rum

Preparation time: 10 minutes

Caramellize the sugar. (We used the newly discovered coconut flower sugar, as it has a creamier, smokey taste). Add coconut milk and stir it until the sugar melts again. Add one shot of rum (or according to taste) to each cup. Note, we’ve tried it also without alcohol, but it doesn’t taste good.

Tip: If you ever buy a fresh coconuts, keep the shell, you can make lovely cups out of it.
