The richness of the coconut milk cooked with the panela makes the drink slightly thick, and when it's combined with the rum, it gives this cocktail a tropical flair. And I can't tell you how aromatic it is! While the sugar is melting with the coconut, your kitchen will smell like summer on a faraway island. It never hurts to dream of white sand beaches in the middle of winter.
It's sweet, mild in alcohol and very easy to drink. For those with a sweet tooth, you will love this drink for its almost dessert-like flavor.
If you can't find panela, you can substitute by mixing 1 cup of dark brown sugar with 2 tablespoons of molasses.
