RumChata White Russian Ingredients
A RumChata White Russian needs 4 ingredients and two optional ingredients for the glass rim. Here’s the list of ingredients you’ll need:
- Half & Half or Heavy Cream
- Simple Syrup for rim (optional)
- Cinnamon Sugar for rim (optional)
RumChata White Russian Directions
Easy step-by-step instructions to make a delish RumChata White Russian:
Step 1: Dip the rim of your glass in Simple Syrup then coat the rim with Cinnamon Sugar.
This step is optional, but it’s so good, I wouldn’t skip it!
Step 2: Fill your glass with ice.
I filled the glass to the top with ice and as you pour ingredients into your glass, some of it will slightly melt leaving enough room for all the ingredients.
Step 3: Add 1.5 – 2 ounces of RumChata. I love the taste of RumChata, so I used 2 ounces.
Step 4: Add 1 ounce of cream. You can use Half & Half or if you want your drink even creamier, use Heavy Whipping Cream.
Tip: I do not suggest using milk as it’s not thick enough to create the creamy texture needed for a good RumChata White Russian.
Step 5: Add a .5 ounce of vodka.
Since RumChata has a lower alcohol content, the vodka gives it the boozy kick it needs.
Step 6: Add 1 ounce of Kahlua or your favorite brand of Coffee Liqueur and stir.
You can use up to 1.5 ounces of Kahlua. I lean towards less coffee liqueur and only used 1 ounce. Kahlua has a strong coffee flavor and too much will overpower the cinnamon flavor from the RumChata.
Step 7: Add additional ice if needed to fill the glass.
Holidays are a time to relax, spend time with friends and family and (of course!) try out new holiday cocktails. RumChata drinks are a favorite for holidays with its creamy rum and cinnamon flavor.
This RumChata White Russian is a crowd pleaser and a perfect addition to your holiday drinks.
