1/2 Photos of Canelazo - Spiced Cinnamon Rum Drink
Canelazo is a drink that will warm you up on a cold night high in the Ecuadorian mountains. It's made from brown sugar, cinnamon and cloves, orange and lime juice, and the fiery concoction known as aguardiente (or "fire water"). Aguardiente is a broad term for high alcohol content beverages distilled from different things. The kind they enjoy in South America is made from cane sugar, so rum makes a great substitute if you can't find aguardiente.
