RumChata is a Caribbean rum-based liqueur made with real dairy cream. So, what does RumChata taste like? It tastes like a combination of horchata and rum, hence the name. It pairs well with various flavors or can even be enjoyed by itself over ice.
RumChata is a versatile liqueur, so take a look at these top 25 RumChata drinks for every season.
RumChata Drinks With Vodka & RumChata Drinks with Fireball
RumChata White Russian
by Top Rockin
The RumChata White Russian by Top Rockin is a sweet and creamy drink. It pairs the smooth RumChata taste and punches it up a notch with coffee liqueur, vodka, and cream. The cinnamon sugar rim is the perfect finishing touch, too.
Low-Carb Vodka Chata Drink
For those looking for a tasty dessert drink, the Low Carb Vodka Chata from My Life Cookbook is the way to go. However, it doesn’t have RumChata directly in the cocktail.
Rather, it uses vodka, heavy cream, almond milk, vanilla extract, cinnamon, nutmeg, and sweetener alternative of choice to create the same delicious cream liqueur taste you love!
RumChata Salted Caramel Martini
This delicious RumChata Salted Caramel Martini by Tipsy Bartender is a RumChata cocktail that makes for the ultimate after-dinner drink. It’s simple, too, so grab your martini glass and cocktail shaker! You’ll only need caramel vodka, RumChata, caramel sauce, and coarse salt for the rim to whip up this one.
Vanilla RumChata Martini
Even if you don’t have a Hy-Vee close to you, you can still enjoy their Vanilla RumChata Martini recipe. This one has mixed reviews because it is strong with a heavy vodka flavor.
However, for those that want a RumChata drink that is less sweet than most RumChata cocktails out there, this is a good one. Simply combine three parts chilled vanilla vodka with one part chilled RumChata.
RumChata Lemon Cake Cocktail
Love lemon pound cake? That’s what this RumChata Lemon Cake Cocktail by The Spruce Eats tastes like. And all you have to do is add a little Limoncello to your RumChata!
RumChata Cinnamon Toast Crunch Cocktail
The RumChata Cinnamon Toast Crunch Cocktail by Mantitlement is one of those sweet cocktails you just can’t get enough of. It tastes like an adult version of cinnamon toast crunch cereal and is made with RumChata, Fireball cinnamon whiskey, and vanilla vodka with a cinnamon sugar rim. You’ll want more than two drinks of this one.
Cinnamon Toast Crunch Shot
Grab your shot glasses because the Cinnamon Toast Crunch Cocktail can also be made into a shot. It has the same flavors, but you leave out the vodka. Though the recipe doesn’t call for it, a bit of whipped cream on top is the perfect finishing touch!
Cinnamon Roll Cocktail
A cinnamon roll in a glass? Yes, please! The Cinnamon Roll Cocktail by Shake Drink Repeat is one of the best RumChata mixed drinks. It’s made with RumChata, heavy cream, and Kahlua, but we like to add extra ground cinnamon or garnish with a cinnamon stick.
The Horchata Margarita by Such the Spot is one of the RumChata drink ideas you probably didn’t see coming. It is worth a try, though, because it is one of those creamy drinks we can’t get enough of. It’s made with tequila, Fireball cinnamon whiskey, RumChata, and horchata de agua.
Don’t worry. They give you the recipe for the horchata de agua!
Frozen RumChata Drinks & RumChata Summer Drinks
Frozen RumChata Strawberry Lemonade
Mantitlement is at it again with their popular RumChata drinks, except this one is perfect for sipping by the pool. Chopped strawberries and strawberry lemonade get paired with RumChata and vanilla or regular vodka for a cocktail recipe that’s easy and tasty.
Vanilla RumChata Milkshake
The Vanilla RumChata Milkshake by Savory Simple is one of those RumChata cocktails that is simple but delicious. It uses vanilla ice cream, whole milk, and RumChata for a delicious summer drink. Sprinkle some ground cinnamon on top, too!
Pineapple Coconut RumChata Cocktail
There’s nothing better in the summer than a cocktail that tastes like a pina colada. The Daily Appetite’s Pineapple Coconut RumChata uses pineapple juice, coconut milk, RumChata, and simple syrup, which makes a lovely creamy texture.
Though this cocktail is served over crushed ice and not frozen, it is just as good when you throw it into the blender!
RumChata Malibu Lime and Soda
The RumChata Malibu Lime & Soda is a viral Tik Tok sensation! Rebecca at Sugar and Soul tried it for herself, and she loved it too! When it comes to RumChata cocktails, this one is a favorite recipe of many.
As its name suggests, it has RumChata, Malibu coconut rum, sweetened lime juice, and club soda. Garnish this one with a lime wedge.
RumChata Iced Latte
This RumChata Iced Latte by Snacks and Sips is a fantastic summer afternoon pick-me-up. It’s made just like any other iced coffee except taken up a notch. It has RumChata, coffee, and milk.
The cinnamon and vanilla in the RumChata pair well with the coffee, and you can even add coffee liqueur, Irish cream, or whipped cream to mix it up a bit, too!
RumChata Root Beer Floats
RumChata Root Beer Floats are an adult version of a summer classic. Here the RumChata flavors replace the need for vanilla ice cream, but we won’t tell if you add a scoop anyways!
Peaches and Cream
RumChata has its own cocktail recipes, though the Peaches and Cream is actually a shot, and it’s a great idea. Simply layer RumChata and E & J Peach Brandy for a shot that tastes like peach cobbler a la mode.
Warm RumChata Drinks & RumChata Winter Drinks
RumChata Hot Cocoa Cocktail
In the winter, hot chocolate is a given! Take your standard cup of hot chocolate and spice it up a bit using RumChata. Don’t forget whipped cream or marshmallows.
This is one of those RumChata drink ideas that scream fall! The recipe has apple juice, brandy, and RumChata with a sprinkle of cinnamon on top.
Hot Buttered RumChata
Here’s another one from Snacks and Sips. It’s their Hot Buttered RumChata which makes the extra-decadent liqueur with butter, brown sugar, and spices. Though it only contains RumChata, you could also add other liquors to this one, like an extra splash of dark rum or brandy.
White Hot Chocolate RumChata
Speaking of hot chocolate, have you ever had white hot chocolate? If you haven’t, try the White Hot Chocolate RumChata by Delish D’Lites. It’s easy to make and oh so sweet and creamy.
RumChata Peppermint Bark Martini
The Peppermint Bark Martini from Real Housemoms should be a staple cocktail around the holiday season. All you have to do is combine RumChata, peppermint schnapps, white creme de cacao, and heavy cream. Try crushing up peppermint bark chocolate for the rim to make it look extra fancy, too.
Pumpkin RumChata Martini
Pumpkin pie in liquid form? Yes, please! We love this Pumpkin RumChata Martini by The Littlest Crumb. Mix up pumpkin, pumpkin pie spice, brown sugar, RumChata cream liqueur, vodka, and a few other ingredients for this one.
They use a cinnamon stick as a garnish, but we like adding graham cracker crumbs mixed with a bit of pumpkin spice to the rim using simple syrup just to really round out the pie flavor.
With RumChata, butterscotch schnapps, Amaretto, and a bit of whole milk, this Snickerdoodle Cocktail is the perfect combination of buttered rum and a cinnamon vanilla milkshake. It’s just like a snickerdoodle cookie, but in our opinion, better!
RumChata Coconut Snowflake Cocktail
This is another one of those easy holiday season cocktail recipes. The RumChata Coconut Snowflake has RumChata, peppermint schnapps, and coconut rum for a delicious combination.
Eggnog is everyone’s favorite cocktail around the holidays. There are a lot of other liquors that you can put into eggnog, but RumChata adds something special. This recipe from Delish even teaches you how to make eggnog from scratch, so grab your rocks glass and whip it up!
RumChata drinks are a favorite, no matter the weather, season, or occasion. Try one (or more!) of these top RumChata cocktail recipes to see just how versatile this Caribbean rum cream liqueur can be!
