a bottle with the rum. Leave this bottle for 2 weeks in a dark
place, shake on a daily base. After two weeks, strain the fluid.
Dissolve the sugar in 1 1/2 cup of boiling water. Allow this to cool

tablets of Norit. Keep filtering and changing the coffee filters
until the fluid is completely clear.
