Spiced Rum

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by TJW2725

This makes a great Chrismas gift, or birthday gift. It is easy, and the taste is out of this world! I will never buy Cap'n Morgans again. This is definitely spicy, you can alter the amount of serranos to taste. The recipe is attributed to Robert Parzick.

I made this last year but just realized I never reviewed it. Shame on me! We love this. I used jalapenos because they're easier to find around here. I wasn't quite sure about putting the peppers in, but they really add a nice heat to it. We're making more this year to give as gifts--we drank the other bottle ourselves! :-)
