I love coffee. Even when I was a little kid, I’d order coffee ice cream or sneak sips of creamy coffee from my mom’s mug. Every so often, my grandparents would let me have a mug of my own when I visited–it was mostly milk and an obscene amount of sugar with a splash of coffee. Sometimes, after dinner on special occasions, my grandpa would make what he called “Mexican Coffee” which I’m pretty sure was Kahlua, coffee, and Bacardi 151 which he would then set on fire at the table to very dramatic effect. I never got to sneak even a sip of that stuff, but I thought it was about the coolest party trick ever.
These days my love of coffee holds true. I look forward to my morning cup (let’s be real, it’s two) every day, and every once in a while I indulge in mug of something a little boozy and indulgent. This particular concoction combines creamy, Rumchata liqueur–which honestly, tastes a lot like boozy cinnamon toast crunch milk–a splash of rum, a few dashes of complex black walnut bitters, a cloud of softly whipped cream, and a dusting of cinnamon.
- 1 cup (8 ounces) hot, freshly brewed coffee
- 1½ ounces rumchata liqueur
- 1 ounce dark rum
- 4 dashes black walnut bitters
- whipped cream and cinnamon to top
- Pour the coffee into a mug, stir in the liqueur, rum, and bitters. Top with whipped cream and a sprinkle of cinnamon.
This post is not sponsored by Rumchata, I just really wanted to make a cozy coffee drink with it.
This looks insane, right up my street!

Oh man, cinnamon toast crunch in drink form. With booze??? I will have to add this to my list of drinks to drink once this baby is born. Yes, there is a list. Don’t judge! Also, those little stirrers and the black and white striped bowls!!!! I have to have them!

I’ve always loved coffee too! And now as an adult I’m all about boozy coffee and coffee desserts! This looks FAB!

Oh man. This looks SO TASTY. And now I’m inspired to try lighting my coffee on fire… (although that would require getting some 151 in the house, which I CANNOT justify!).
FIRE! It would be dangerous (literally and figuratively) to procure a bottle of 151 ._.
Love. And this looks so good to boot! Love the black and white styling.
Well I definitely know what I’ll be making for the holidays… this sounds perfectly cozy. Also your grandfather’s drink – loving it haha grandparents are truly the greatest.

What lovely pictures! As I sip coffee while writing this comment I think to myself, “gee, I wish this coffee had rum in it!” Ha! Commencing walk to liquor cabinet.
This sounds incred! I’m a fairly recent coffee addict but I’m definitely addicted for life now! Also, your stir sticks, they’re so adorable!
Hi! I’m so excited to have found your blog! I love Rumchata (some family introduced me to it last year, whew – can’t believe it took me so long) and I love it! I’m adding this to my holiday list immediately. Can’t wait to start follow along!
Thank you for visiting, Gabriella!!
This sounds so delicious, Cindy! And I love all these props!
