Send me all your money, (that you can honestly afford), and I won't do it.

LOL @ skinny!!

i believe BZ does not export any. you are at the mercy of someone who would be willing to go there, buy it, and ship it to you.

good luck! (if someone IS willing to do this, put me down for 2 bottles of Cane Juice!)

(aw man, here we go again...)

kath - how many years ya been goin' to AC now, and ya never had da cane juice? a bartender introduced it to us our first visit, 1993. it is local sugar cane rum, sweet and smooth (and cheap).

the guy kept it behind the bar, and said 'try this, it will f*[email protected] you up!". it is actually very tasty with pineapple.

find it in the grocery store, i think. at the duty free shop in bz international, it was $4 US a bottle.

Jane,
My first trip to AC was less than one year ago... Feb, 2001. Next week will be my third trip this year. I don't spend a lot of time in bars, though. I was just wondering if cane just was alcoholic, of if you added it to something alcoholic.
Thanks,
Kathy

Kathy, as a child growing up in Belize....we had cane growing in our back yard. We would peel the cane, cut it into joints and just suck the juice right out of them. sometimes the cane would forment in the sun, and you got a cane rum taste oooooooooooh good. I have never had the bottled kind. You need to find you some growing somewhere and experience it first hand.

mr- that's a good memory. i can just picture it. i never tried sugar from cane. they just don't grow it here in PA. we do grow the best corn-on-the-cob.

but the kind i meant is a rum.

oh! i just had a flashback to the winesap apples that grew in our yard as a kid. we had maybe 5 trees. we would pick them and wash them under the hose. then we would shine them up in our shirts to see who could make their's the shiniest. they were so crisp, sweet and tart all at the same time.

and the smell of my mom's apple pie.

thanks for that, rose!

kathy - i also do not drink much. i had 2 sprites at my HS reunion last night. but i am often dragged to bars when on vacation with frank. on that trip ('93) we were with another couple we had met. but i did find this this yummy.

when we went back last year, we brought 2 bottles home last year.

Hey Pirate-over-40,
Thanks so much for the link to the Tastes of Belize site. I was so disappointed when our trip to Ambergris Caye fell through.......we should have woken up there THIS morning! :-(
I was really looking forward to picking up some coconut rum! Now at least I can have a "taste of Belize"!

alas, i do not think they will ship liquor to PA. we have to buy it in 'state stores'. i think the prices are kinda high. how much is 'one barrel' at the duty free? it was $14.95 on this site!

cool site, just the same.

oh, pirate! it is already snowing there? it should be freezing here today too, but it is 66*. the hot tub is still 101*!!!
