This is a favorite alcoholic drink in the Congo Republic. It is rich and fatty because it contains coconut milk, so be forewarned!


2 cups coconut milk

2 tablespoons sugar

¾ cup white rum

¾ cup white crème de cacao

1 cup crushed ice plus extra for serving

freshly grated nutmeg for garnish


Place all ingredients, minus the nutmeg, in a blender and process until smooth. Place a tablespoon of crushed ice in a glass, pour the drink over it, and garnish with nutmeg.


Serves 4.
