It wasn’t all that long ago when I first shared my love of horchata as well as a recipe for my own homemade version with cardamom. Horchata is a Mexican drink made from white rice and it has become one of my favorite special occasion drinks. I love adding a bit of rum to it so last week when I saw someone post a photo of RumChata on Instagram, my eyes grew wide with curiosity. Was I actually looking at a bottled alcohol drink based around horchata? Why yes. Yes I was. I immediately sent Jeff to the liquor store to grab a bottle for us to sample. With a “cheers” and two shots down the pie hole, we were smitten. It was love at first taste.
So with me being me, my next thought was “what deliciousness can I create around this drink?” Boom. Milkshake. I made this sweet RumChata milkshake the very next morning and enjoyed it for breakfast. What? It’s hot outside. Cheers!
