It's RUM POPO (Belize Egg Nog) time again..

Belizean Rum

Last December I did a blog post on Rum PoPo (Belize Egg Nog). Well it is time to break out the rum again, just in time for all of the holidays. Egg Nog or Rum PoPo as it is called in Belize is made with Belize Rum, if you happen to be so lucky to have some on hand, it is the perfect holiday drink. I found this recipe on http://belizelive.net/rum_popo.html. I had never had egg nog until a few years ago and I thought I would give it a try. It was actually very good and I plan on making more this year. CHEERS!

  1. Great recipe - I don't see myself beating the eggs for 20 minutes, rather go straight to drinking the rum.
