You don’t often get more indulgent than dulce de leche… Apart from when it’s made in to a coconut rum cocktail. This recipe isn’t for the faint hearted.


  • 100ml coconut rum (Koko Kanu if you can find it but Malibu works too)
  • 100ml Bacardi
  • 500ml whole milk
  • 4 tbsp dulce de leche


  1. Put the coconut rum and Bacardi into a blender with the whole milk and dulce de leche (see tip). Blend for 2-3 minutes until frothy and well mixed. Either cover and chill for 4-6 hours or serve immediately, filling the glasses (or coconuts) with ice before pouring in the cocktail.
  2. If you’re making it ahead and the froth disappears, give it another pulse of the blender or a quick whisk before serving.

  1. To get the marbled look of the drinks in the picture, add 2 tbsp of the dulce de leche to the blender, then drizzle the rest into the glasses once you’ve poured the cocktail over the ice. If you don’t have a blender, put the ingredients in a large bowl and use a stick blender instead.
