Rum Popo and Happy Holidays!

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.
Sweet, creamy, 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...

Happy Holidays!
