Cinnamon Hot Chocolate with Rum + Horchata

Cinnamon hot chocolate made for adults with a rum + horchata liqueur - perfect for the holidays!

 This fall I made the amazing discovery of rumchata: horchata + rum. (FYI…I’ve never actually tried horchata before but I imagine I would love it and have mentally added it to my list of things to try in the near future.) But in the meantime, I’ve been enjoying small tastes of rumchata, spiking the whipped cream in my layered pear cake, and making this delicious hot chocolate recipe. It’s an easy recipe with so much flavor – of course you can add more Cruzan if you want more alcohol but I kept it fairly mild.

Have a wonderful day and thanks for reading!

CINNAMON HOT CHOCOLATE WITH RUMCHATA
Yield: 2 large mugs

INGREDIENTS
3 c milk
1/2 c half and half
1/4 c + 2 T cocoa
3 T sugar
2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 c Cinnamon Rumchata*
Whipped cream, optional

DIRECTIONS
In a large saucepan on med-high, heat milk, half, cocoa and sugar. Stir well. Once milk is steaming, remove from stove and add in vanilla and rumchata. Served with or without whipped cream.

*Look for it in your local liquor store. I used Cruzan Velvet Cinnamon Rum (Horchata + Rum + Cinnamon). If you cannot find Rumchata with cinnamon, add cinnamon yourself.
