Why You’ll Love These RumChata Cocktails

If dessert cocktails are more your speed, these RumChata Cocktails are for you! We love how deliciously creamy RumChata is – and also how versatile it can be. There’s a drink recipe here for every occasion and season, and just about every theme you can think of.

What Exactly Is RumChata?

RumChata was inspired by a creamy Latin American drink called horchata, and classic Caribbean rum. It basically tastes like a combination of the two. The creaminess of this liquor makes it ideal for sweet drinks, including many of these RumChata Cocktails.

What Does It Taste Like?

The dark notes from the rum combine with the hints of cinnamon and vanilla in the horchata, giving RumChata a sweet and lightly spiced flavor. The cream lends it a much fuller flavor than many other alcohols. These lighter notes balance out the darker taste of the rum, creating a complex and balanced flavor profile.

Can You Drink It Straight?

Absolutely! RumChata is a lot milder in flavor than straight rum, making it a pleasant drink by itself. If you don’t feel like putting in the effort it takes to whip up a shot or cocktail, just pop an ice cube in a glass, cover it with this creamy liqueur, and enjoy!

What’s The Best Mixer For RumChata Cocktails?

Since it has dairy cream as a base, RumChata tastes great with pretty much anything you might think to put cream in. Coffee and hot chocolate are both popular mix-ins. It also pairs well with anything that complements cinnamon or vanilla. Cola, root beer, Fireball, and apple juice or cider all make good additions to this liqueur.

How to Store It

Because of its alcohol content, RumChata doesn’t need to be stored in the fridge like other dairy-based products. Keep it in a tightly closed container in a cool, dark place, like a liquor cabinet or pantry.
