Here’s a creamy take on traditional buttered rum: Rumchata is a blend of rum, cream, cinnamon, vanilla, and sugar. Essentially, it’s the Mexican drink, horchata, combined with rum. Even if you’re unfamiliar with horchata, the apple pie spice adds the coziness you know and love in a winter cocktail. The result is a combination of two super-comforting, homey drinks that’s perfect for sipping by the fireplace or on a rainy day.
