We’ve swooned over the milkshake-y RumChata Mudslide. Gone gaga for the RumChata White Russian. Delighted in the RumChata Alexander. Now, it’s time to take the creamy liqueur RumChata in a more tropical direction with this spin on the classic piña colada.
Adding RumChata to a piña colada just makes sense. After all, RumChata—a cream liqueur made with rum, cream and cinnamon—has a bit of an island vibe to it, to begin with. Its ingredients only enhance the piña colada’s components, which fans of it already know include both coconut rum and white rum, fragrant coconut milk and tangy pineapple juice.
Looking for more riffs on the piña colada? We’ve got you covered, with everything from the sparkling colada and the Chartreuse colada to the Angostura colada and the Sherry colada. What can we say, we like piña coladas. We think this latest RumChata-spiked version fits perfectly in the drink’s canon.
