Christmas is coming...

Following in the footsteps of our awesome homemade Wedding Limoncello, my super wife and I have been busily preparing for Christmas... by making spiced rum.
I've just had the pleasure of tasting it, and despite being batch numero uno, it's the dogs biscuits.
As such, I'm more than happy to share the recipe (which we kind of made up as we went along) with the world at large.
From memory, it went something like this:

70 cl Havana Club Especial
Peel of one 2 oranges
4 Jalepeno Peppers
4 x Birds Eye Chillis
About a dozen whole cloves
1 cinnamon stick
Small handful of All Spice Berries

We then sat and waited for about 35 days. I reckon you could probably do something useful in that time, rather than just sitting and watching a bottle infuse, but that's entirely up to you.
Be warned - it's got quite a kick to it!
