Winter Cocktail RumChata Recipe:
If you are looking to make a delicious rumchata drink here you go. We really love the beautiful warm flavors the rumchata creates in this drink. You will love it.
I have a large amount of bottles in my (not big enough) wet bar. So occasionally I dig through the bottles in there and invent new recipes to use them up and entertain my friends.
But what’s the fun if you only reduce inventory? So I bought Rumchata.(which is why my wet bar is still stuffed).
Winter Rum Cocktail Ingredients:
Rumchata is a creamy rich rum liqueur (14% alcohol). And it is PERFECT for this winter cocktail.
The Frangelico liqueur was already in my bar. I used it previously for our Chocolate Cake Shot.
It’s an expensive buy. So I’ll be making more Frangelico drinks to use it up. Fortunately I love it!
Hazelnut liqueur is so good you can use it in baking recipes too. Plus, it works in lots of cocktail and shot recipes. Win win.
For the Cocktail:
Vanilla Vodka is one of the most useful liquors I own. I use it all the time.
Vanilla vodka flavor blends the Hazelnut and rum flavors in this cocktail like a bridge. It’s an extra tweak of yummy you won’t want to miss..
How 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 Rumchata.com 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. “
Our Winter White Rum Drink will not separate… IF you follow the recipe exactly and use these ingredients.
More TIPS: 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.
For the Sugar Rim:
The sanding sugar rim definitely enhances the elegance and winter vibe of this white cocktail.
We chose a long stemmed Coop Glass to bring in a bit of retro class. It creates a lovely after dinner drink experience. Enjoy!
