Toritos: Peanut and Vanilla Aperitif recipe from Pati's Mexican Table Season 1, Episode 12 “Vanilla”


  • 2 12-ounce cans evaporated milk
  • 1 14-ounce can sweetened condensed milk
  • 3/4 cup cane liquor (aguardiente de caña), or rum, more or less to taste
  • 3/4 cup smooth peanut butter, (or espresso, if you want to make it coffee flavored)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Ice to serve

To Prepare

  • Place the cane liquor, evaporated milk, condensed milk, peanut butter and vanilla extract in the blender and puree until smooth. Transfer to a jar, cover and refrigerate until chilled.
  • Alternatively, you may also pour directly over ice cubes or add some ice cubes to your blender and make it a Frappé! In any case, serve very cold.
  • NOTE: There are different Torito flavors. To make coffee Toritos, substitute peanut butter for a cup of strong coffee and add more sugar to taste. To make fruit Toritos, substitute peanut butter for about 2 cups of guaba or mango (or any fruit of your choice) pulp, and sugar to taste.
