I must confess I cannot
see a “misplaced” rum recipe out there because I run to mix it and taste it! Today's
recipe is a delicious rum popo, as prepared in Belize where it’s the equivalent of
Puerto Rican coquito, Venezuelan ponche crema or American eggnog.
addictive, it’s simply de-li-ci-ous! And
by the way, did you know that Belize is the only Central American country where
the official language is English, because it was a British colony, but where people
speak Creole and Spanish? Isn't cool? Every day you learn something new...
