Have you tried RumChata yet? Where has this stuff been all my life? I first heard about it last year when a bartender asked my friends and I if we wanted to try a certain cinnamon whiskey with some RumChata. We all had the same questionably curious looks on our faces since we had absolutely no clue what she was talking about or what she had even said. RumChaWhat? Well, I’ve had it enough times since that night to know that this belongs in my liquor cabinet and close to my heart. And this Cocoa Horchata Martini is an easy, delicious way for you to try it if you’ve never had it before.
RumChata, a liqueur made of horchata (rice, cinnamon and sugar) and rum, is mixed with crème de cacao and chocolate milk to make for the perfectly creamy, cinnamon, chocolatey after dinner drink. RumChata alone is a yummy after dinner drink but when mixed with chocolate, it also becomes dessert. This martini bestills my RumChata-dreaming, chocolate milk-loving heart.
In a small bowl, combine confectioners’ sugar and cocoa powder. Whisk to combine, then spread onto a shallow dish. Fill another shallow dish with 1/4 inch of water.
Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Add RumChata, creme de cacao and chocolate milk. Cover and shake until chilled.
Dip 2 martini glass rims in water and edge each glass in cocoa-sugar. Divide martini into prepared glasses.
Chocolate almond milk
