I got this recipe from a good friend and co-worker Samantha. She was born in Puerto Rico. This drink is a traditional from Puerto Rico and is delicious. It is always made by Puerto Rican families around the Christmas and New Year holidays, but you can enjoy it anytime of the year. It will keep forever in the refrigerator. I still have a half bottle from Christmas in the refrigerator. It's so good and smooth.Thanks Samantha. Serve as a cordial and Enjoy
