    Candil or Caspiroleta (Colombian Hot Milk and Rum)

    Most Colombians swear by the restorative powers of a good, hot cup of candil; if you have a cold or feel one coming on, this is the drink of choice. Perfect for hosting a novena, in lieu of a hot toddy, or whenever the mood strikes and the thermometer dips.
