Rumchata is one of the sweetest and most delicious liqueurs available. It’s a mix of sweet rum and horchata, the classic central American winter drink. If you’re a fan of cinnamon, sugar, and cream, you likely already love Rumchata and all that it entails.
However, there’s more to Rumchata than just the beverage. You can take it as a shot to warm you up on a cold fall night, but it works even better when mixed with other drinks to create unique, flavored shots. If you’re looking for a way to wow your next party, whip up some of these Rumchata shots.
Apple Pie Shots
Most Rumchata shots involve whiskey, and these holiday-themed Apple Pie shots are no exception. With your choice of apple whiskey, Rumchata, and a pie crust rim (optional but worth it), you can make Thanksgiving dinner a little more exciting. It’s a simple and delicious cocktail that’s worth a try.
Cinnamon Toast Crunch Shot
One of the most classic Rumchata shots, the cinnamon toast crunch shot was named after the popular breakfast cereal. When you take this shot, it tastes like breakfast when you were a kid - there’s just a little kick at the end! All this recipe requires is Rumchata and Fireball Whiskey, so if you love cinnamon, you will love this one.
Rumchata Cheesecake Pudding Shots
Instead of a traditional shot or a regular Jello shot, these cheesecake pudding shots up the game and make a classy, boozy, delicious dessert. Although they’re a little more complicated to make, the Rumchata in the cheesecake pudding and the graham cracker crust feels more like a dessert than an alcoholic drink (but don’t worry, they’re still alcoholic).
Made with grenadine, rumchata, and tequila rose, these shots look like layered parfaits. However, they use science to layer three liquids on top of each other, creating a gorgeous (and scrumptious) shot option. Topped with whipped cream, these three-layer shots would make an excellent addition to any New Year’s or Valentine’s party.
Chocolate Rumchata Pudding Shots
With Rumchata’s sweet and milky flavor, it’s no surprise that there are chocolate pudding shots on this list. These are easy to make and only use a box of pudding mix, Rumchata, and whipped cream. The cinnamon and vanilla (and rum) pair incredibly well with the chocolate, making this a dangerously delicious pudding shot.
With all of these Rumchata shot options, you’re sure to have some excellent parties this holiday season! Let us know in the comments if we missed one of your favorite recipes or if you tried one of these! Enjoy, and happy drinking!
