What is RumChata?

RumChata is a liqueur made with dark rum, cream, vanilla, and cinnamon.

It’s super sweet and often compared to Baileys Irish Cream, but the cinnamon really sets it apart and I think it’s even better than Baileys. Some even compare the taste to the milk leftover after eating Cinnamon Toast Crunch, and who doesn’t love that!?

The name is essentially a combination of the words Rum and Horchata, which is a traditional Mexican milk drink flavored with cinnamon, vanilla, and sugar. RumChata is intended to taste like a mixture of these two beverages, and boy does it deliver.

It’s made in Wisconsin of all places, but you can find it at any liquor store in the USA without issue.

As far as alcohol content and price, it has an ABV of 15% and is about $20 for a 750ml bottle, so it’s not very expensive as far as liqueurs go!
