Finally, stir in the rum, making sure everything is nice and smooth. The drink is now ready to serve, or you can store it in a sanitized bottle (750ml).

Serve chilled or over ice and store in a cool, dry place (pantry) unopened for 1-2 years but once opened, store in the fridge for 6-9 months. If the drink starts to separate, it’s no longer safe to drink.
