What You’ll Need

This easy rum and milk cocktail is made with just 2 main ingredients, plus ice and garnishes.

  • Coconut Rum: The coconut run enhances the coconut flavor in this cocktail. In a pinch, you could use regular rum or, for a unique twist, some spiced rum.
  • Coconut Milk: Coconut milk is the key ingredient in Santa’s Spiked Milk and provides the creamy, milky base.
  • Fresh coconut: Fresh coconut around the rim of the glass adds a decorative touch and more coconut flavor.
  • Corn Syrup: Helps the coconut stick to the rim of the glass. Simple syrup would also work.
  • Ice Cubes
  • Garnish (Optional): For that extra touch of holiday magic, garnish your creation with a cinnamon stick, rosemary, fresh cranberries and coconut or even a festive candy cane.

How to Make Santa’s Spiked Milk

Here’s a quick overview of how to make this simple Christmas cocktail.

  • Prepare the glass. Pour corn syrup into a shallow bowl then dip each glass into it, to coat the rim. Then dip each coated rim in the fresh coconut flakes. Fill the glass with ice.
  • Assemble the drink. Add a shot of coconut rum to the glass then top off with coconut milk. Enjoy!

Serving Suggestions

Santa’s spiked milk makes a great addition to any holiday party or get-together – or you can enjoy a glass by yourself while watching a cheesy Hallmark movie. The choice is yours!

A platter of festive treats, like gingerbread cookies, peppermint bark, and spiced nuts, also makes a nice touch when serving.

Can Rum Milk Punch Be Prepared in Advance?

This cocktail is so easy to prepare in the moment but if you want to, yes, you can prepare it in advance.

You can prepare the glasses with the corn syrup and coconut up to a few hours in advance. To assemble the cocktail itself, simply combine the rum and coconut milk in a pitcher and refrigerate.

When you’re ready to serve, stir the rum and milk then pour over ice into the glasses. Easy peasy!
