You Need A Drink: Rumchata


Are you tired of the traditional labor day Pimms Cup (this is traditional in the world of me, personally.) Do you find yourself flinging up your arms and shouting, “a true laborer would never drink the cucumber beverage served at Ascot?” I respect your strong opinions about odd things, and I have found a drink for you, eccentric and opinionated friend!

Rumchata. It’s the cream liquer love child of rum and horchata (a delicious beverage made from tigernuts, so you know that it is both grrrr-eat and super sexy.) You can find where it’s sold in your area here, and here are two fun recipes you can use it for:

Cake and Ice Cream:
1 part Rumchata
1 part cake flavored vodka

Dirty Monkey:
2 parts Rumchata
1 part banana liqueur

Happy labor day, almost. Go have a cocktail. You’ve earned it.

      Now I want a Pimm’s Cup. In a pimp cup.

      This stuff is seriously the bomb. It tastes like an alcoholic version of the milk left over in your cereal bowl after you eat Cinnamon Toast Crunch. It is fabulous mixed with milk, cream, iced coffee, vodka, and more rum. The funniest and yummiest combo I’ve ever had with it is the following:

      The Money Shot
      1 part Rumchata
      I part Goldschlager

      …if only the real thing tasted so good.

      How about rumchata and just straight melted ice cream? Could be a hell of a milkshake. :)
