What Does RumChata Taste Like?

RumChata is a cream liquor that is made with Caribbean rum, cream with flavors of cinnamon and vanilla. I personally don’t taste a ton of cinnamon in RumChata when I drink it straight, it’s there but it doesn’t scream at you.

You can either bring out the cinnamon flavor or sort of push it down – however you need it for the drink recipe that you’re making. Just another reason why we love making RumChata drink recipes so much.

Is This Cocktail Sweet?

This delicious toasted almond cocktail was inspired by those equally delicious toasted almond ice cream bars that I used to eat as a kid – and still do. Typically this drink is made with heavy cream, but we decided to kick it up with creamy RumChata instead. You can certainly swap that out for cream though, too!

This creamy, sweet cocktail is going to be a hit with everyone. From the newbie 21 age drinkers all the way through to your grandma. Trust me, we tried this RumChata drink out at our last family party and all drinking ages were represented.

Not one drop of this cocktail was left behind by anyone.

Tips For Success

  • Don’t Forget the Garnish: The crushed almonds that rim the glass brings home that almond flavor. It also makes for a delightful presentation, especially for a date night or parties.
  • Try Using Homemade Amaretto: If you really want to take this cocktail over the top, try our Homemade Amaretto Recipe! Super easy to make and it lasts in the refrigerator a really long time.
  • Shake Well: Shake this cocktail very well, for at least 15 seconds. You’ll want the cream to become frothy and the drink to be super chilled.

  • 2 ounces RumChata

  1. Pour a shallow layer of the syrup onto a small plate, wide enough to fit the rim of the glass you are using. Add the chopped almonds to another plate and spread out into an even layer.
  2. Dip the rim of your glass into the syrup, let the excess drip off and then dip the rim into the nuts, rolling around until the rim is completely coated.
  3. Add all the ingredients for the cocktail into a shaker with some ice. Shake well and strain into the prepared glass.

    Curious as to what is in the bottom of the glasses? The recipe doesn’t mention anything, but it looks like an ingredient and not the glass design.
