RumChata, a unique cream-based liqueur, offers a symphony of Caribbean rum, Midwestern cream, and a blend of spices, making it a versatile ingredient for various recipes. Its composition includes Caribbean rum and real dairy cream, complemented with cinnamon, sugar, and other secret ingredients for a distinct taste. The 2020 RumChata gift set includes a 750ml bottle of RumChata, alongside 100ml bottles of new flavors like RumChata Limón and RumChata Peppermint Bark. This expansion follows the introduction of a 375ml bottle and a 100 ml 3-pack, catering to diverse consumer preferences.
Thomas Maas, the creator of RumChata, crafted this innovative drink by experimenting with different liquors, ultimately finding that rum perfectly complements the warm spices and rich cream. This creamy liqueur is inspired by horchata, a traditional Mexican and Spanish drink made from soaked rice or almonds, infused with cinnamon, resembling milk in texture.
RumChata’s versatility extends to various recipes, from simple drinks to complex cocktails and even culinary creations. For a quick martini, mix RumChata with espresso or substitute it with Mozart Rose Gold Chocolate Cream for a non-rum option. A popular cocktail includes shaking RumChata and caramel vodka with ice. For those preferring a sweet touch, heating cream and sugar on the stove dissolves any granulated sweetener effectively.
Delight in the Holiday Spice Martini or the Coco-Chata, both featuring RumChata. Other inventive uses include adding it to pudding and milk mixtures for shots, or melting it with butter for a unique culinary twist. The RumChata Hot Chocolate is a comforting recipe, requiring milk, chocolate chips, and vanilla extract, showcasing the liqueur’s adaptability to various tastes and occasions.
