    I was pleased to be able to find this locally, at a Party Town store! Kinda pricy, but nice for special occasions! First time I tried this liquor was when I was in Bogota, it was really cold and we sat outside and watched a band play and drank canelazos! :)

    Hi Erica,

    My friend Yesid let me try this drink at New Year’s eve, we would have a few drinks and then
    start with the chicken!
    Well I never got at the chicken, I really do not remember a thing after finishing the whole or probably more bottlles , it is powerfull stuff just be aware when you have never tried it before,
    still it is a good drink!

    My dad is from Bogota and he likes to drink for an upset stomach after eating too much. I didn’t believe him at first but it works wonders as well as being delicious.
