A RumChata Coconut Snowflake Cocktail

December 13, 2019

This RumChata cocktail is creamy and minty with an island twist! Shaken, not stirred – it’s both frosty and heart warming. Playful and elegant. The tastiest Christmas cocktail from Hawaii to the North Pole.

With a rim, delicately frosted with powdered sugar, it makes a perfectly whimsical, winter dessert cocktail.

I love creamy cocktails at Christmas! Whether they’re creamy chocolate, Irish cream, or coconut cream cocktails, I just love the coziness.

Here’s a Tip!

To rim your glass with powdered sugar:

Add a few drops of RumChata to a plate and dip the rim into it, spinning it to be sure the whole rim is coated. On another plate, sprinkle about a teaspoon of powdered sugar and gently dip your coated glass into the sugar.

A Few Common Questions:

What does RumChata taste like?

RumChata is one of my very favorite cream liqueurs, especially for Christmas. I love to heat a little on the stove and drink it straight with a sprinkle of cinnamon or pumpkin spice by the tree!

It’s flavors are a perfect mix of vanilla, cinnamon, rum and dairy cream, and mixing in a little coconut and a little frosty mint transforms the flavor into such an exciting, tropical, Christmasy treat!

What do I need to make this cocktail?

  • Cocktail shaker & jigger
  • 2 small plates
