Measuring Rumchata

This White Rum Drink

Rumchata is a creamy rich rum liqueur, and it is perfect for this white rum drink. The Frangelico liqueur was already in the bar. We also featured it for our Chocolate Cake Shot.

It’s an expensive buy, so we will be making more Frangelico drinks to use it up. Hazelnut liqueur is so good you can use it in baking recipes too. Plus, it works in many different cocktail and shot recipes. Both hot and cold drinks, which are popular during the holiday season.

What is the White Rum Drink like?

This cocktail falls in the same category as drinks like the White Russian, our Buttered Toffee Amaretto Drink, and the Pumpkin Spice Martini. All of these cocktails have a creamy base with luscious, decadent flavors that echo the seasonal vibes of the holidays.

Ingredients Instructions to Avoid Curdling

Rumchata is made with cream. We add even more fresh cream to make this drink recipe. Cream can curdle in cocktails.

According to FACS page.”RumChata is made with real dairy cream and it will curdle if mixed with anything that has a high level of citric acid.”

Use fresh cream that is not too close to it’s sell by date. And don’t mix fresh milk or cream with acidic sodas, mixer or citrus fruits. Also…keep the alcohol content of your alcohol mix ins to under 60% to be safe.

What if you make a cream or rumchata cocktail that does curdle? It only affects the texture and look of the drink. Curdling like this will not hurt you. The drink will just not be as appealing.

Making the sugared rim

The sanding sugar rim definitely enhances the elegance and winter vibe of this white rum drink.

We chose a long stemmed coupe glass to bring in a bit of retro class. It creates a lovely after dinner drink experience. Enjoy!
