For anyone who ever thought this was hard... its not. Time consuming maybe, but if you are a cook you are use to the hurry up and wait that good food involves. I dont always use rum, most of the time I use Irish Cream or Godiva Liqueurs. My favorite batch was made with Godiva White Chocolate Liqueur.
