  1. In a saucepan, combine water and sugar. Bring to a boil and cook for 3 minutes.
  2. Place egg yolks in a blender and process on high speed. Slowly pour in the hot sugar water while blending (pouring too fast might curdle the yolks.) Add condensed milk, rum and vanilla. Blend until smooth. Chill in refrigerator.

If you're looking for a very strong rum taste this is good, however the exact recipe is way too strong, rum is all you taste.

The recipe is good, however, if the evaporated milk is substituted by a 14oz can of condensed milk, the result will be much better.

My mother made this with Spanish Hard Cider, I use Champagne instead of Rum and it's much smoother!!! Great after a holiday dinner.

I agree with some of the others. This would really be great with less rum. I'll try it with less rum next time.

This turned out rich and creamy! I made it for my husband who doesn't drink alcohol, so I didn't add the rum. I'm not sure if that changed the recipe too much, but it was really, really sweet. I will try it again, but may use evaporated milk instead of sweetened condensed.

Just a little less rum would make this recipe almost perfect
