  • Combine all ingredients (except rum/brandy if using) in a large pot with 16 cups water. Bring to a boil.
  • Reduce to a simmer and cook for 30 minutes.
  • Make sure the piloncillo is completely dissolved.
  • Stir to combine.
  • Serve warm with both liquid and fruits.
  • If desired, serve with a little rum or brandy added to it.


If the spices floating around bother you, you can remove the fruit and then drain the liquid. Serve the clear liquid with some of the fruit added back in.
