How to make copycat Rum Chata.
Initially when I wrote this post, I tweaked a recipe for Copycat Rum Chata from The Semi Sweet Sisters. It was good, but thinner than regular Rum Chata. For the past couple of years, I've been meaning to do some more adjustments to the recipe to have it be closer to the original product and I think I might have managed it this time.

Before I get to the recipe, I want to note a few things.

First, unlike Rum Chata, this really does need to be refrigerated and I'm not 100% how long it will last. I assume as long as the heavy cream is good for. So unless you're throwing a huge party, I would recommend not doubling the recipe or anything crazy. I found that the mix gets a bit lumpy after a few days (not spoiled, just lumpy).

Second, use a small pitcher. A big one will give you the illusion that you didn't make very much.

Third, you can use ice in it, but I'd recommend using "fake" ice cubes like these acrylic ones so they keep your drink cold without diluting your drink.

At the bottom, I'll link you to some of the drink recipes I've made using Rum Chata. They're delicious. But Rum Chata is also tasty alone. Just keep in mind that it has a fairly high alcohol content, depending on how much you drink. Please drink responsibly.

Ingredients  Supplies listed below may include affiliate links to the products.

  • 3 cups heavy cream
  • 1 cup simple syrup ( ½ cup sugar, ½ cup water)
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 3 teaspoon homemade vanilla extract 
  • a pinch of nutmeg
  • 2 cups of Bacardi Rum (add more or less to taste): 2 cups makes this strong

Recipe for Copycat Rum Chata

Make a simple syrup by combining the sugar and water in a small pan on the stove on medium heat. Once the sugar has dissolved, remove from burner and let cool.

Once the simple syrup has cooled, mix all of your ingredients together in a pitcher. Serve with ice if desired.

This recipe was based of the recipe from The Semi Sweet Sisters: Copycat Rum Chata. They have what is likely a much lower calorie option, but it's a bit thinner.
