Ingredients

  • 1 cup water

  • 1 ½ cups white sugar

  • 1 teaspoon anise seeds

  • 4 egg yolks

  • 1 (750 milliliter) bottle 151 proof rum (such as Bacardi®)

  • 1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk

  • 1 (12 ounce) can evaporated milk

  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Directions

  1. Bring water, sugar, and anise seeds to a boil in a saucepan; lower heat to medium-low. Simmer until thick and syrupy, about 10 more minutes. Remove from heat and pour through a strainer to separate the seeds out; set syrup aside to cool slightly.

  2. Beat eggs yolks in a large bowl until light yellow; add rum, condensed milk, evaporated milk, and vanilla extract. Stir in syrup mixture until mixture is smooth. Pour into decorative bottles and seal tightly. Refrigerate for at least 6 hours before drinking, the longer the better.
