What Is RumChata Limón?

First, let’s answer the question, “what is this stuff?”. Many people are familiar with RumChata, but not everyone knows there is more than one variety of the famously delicious and smooth cream liqueur. 

In addition to the original RumChata, there’s also a Lemon version called Rumchata Limón, along with a RumChata Peppermint Bark, which is perfect for the holidays. The version we’re focusing on today is creamy with a bright and fresh lemon finish. 

Rumchata Limón tastes like the original RumChata that’s had a nice, fresh squeeze of lemon added to it. The lemon is there, but it doesn’t make you pucker, and it also balances the warm flavors that RumChata offers. 

There are many ways you can use Rumchata Limón. Here are ten lemony cocktails you’ll want to try. 

Ten Delicous Cocktail with Rumchata Limón

1. Black Limon Berry

By RumChata


There are very few flavor combinations that go together better than lemon and berry. Combine Rumchata Limón cream liquor with raspberry vodka in a cocktail shaker over ice. Serve in a shot glass with a lemon wedge, or pour over ice in a tall collins glass. We like to also add vanilla vodka in equal amounts to the raspberry. 

2. Limosa

Are you looking for a Rumchata Limón cocktail that looks as creamy as it tastes? Try this boozy whipped lemonade with Rumchata Limón cream liqueur, sweetened condensed milk, heavy whipping cream, and lemon juice, and then blend with ice. 

We like to add a dark Caribbean rum or sweet coconut rum for drinks with an extra little kick. 

7. Hot Limon Latte 

By RumChata


Rumchata Limón and coffee? We say yes, and it’s delicious. It might sound like an odd combination, but we urge you to give it a try. Not interested in a hot drink? Try it iced for a cold latte instead! A little real dairy cream will make it extra creamy when you combine it in a shaker with ice for the cold variation. 

8. RumChata Strawberry Lemonade

Ok, so this one requires a little prep work due to the meringue, but it’s so worth it. The original recipe also doesn’t call for Rumchata Limón, but we made a couple of substitutions for this drink recipe. We replaced the vodka in this recipe with 2-parts Rumchata Limón to one part vodka. Fill your glass and garnish with lemon or raspberry before serving. You can also enjoy drinking this one with a little plate of lemon cookies for a light dessert. 

Where To Buy RumChata Limón

You can purchase Rumchata Limón at most liquor stores and many well-stocked grocery stores with a liquor section. If it’s not available locally, or you just don’t want to make the trip to the store to pick it up, you can also order it online. 


What does Limon RumChata taste like?

Rumchata Limón is creamy and tastes sweet with fresh lemon flavor. It’s a great substitute for other lemon liqueurs in cocktail recipes. 

Is there cinnamon in RumChata Limon?

Original RumChata has a touch of cinnamon to resemble horchata. With Rumchata Limón, that cinnamon flavor is replaced with the flavor of fresh lemons. We don’t know RumChata’s exact recipe, but if there’s cinnamon in there, you can’t really taste it. 

How many RumChata flavors are there?

There are three flavors of RumChata – Original, Peppermint Bark, and Limon. 

Is RumChata Limon seasonal?

Rumchata Limón is a flavor you can purchase and enjoy any time of year. It goes just as well in holiday cocktails as it does in lazy summer sippers. 

Bottom Line 

Rumchata Limón isn’t like any other cream liqueur. Made with real dairy cream, Caribbean rum, and more than a hint of fresh lemons, it has become a favorite among lemon-flavored liqueurs. Try serving one of these lemony cocktails at your next gathering.
