Hey… let me let you in on a little secret. I’ve always wanted to be a judge. Until last week, this was only a thought in my head that I had surprisingly managed to keep to myself for most of my life. No sé, there’s something about the appearance of power and authority in being a “judge” that really appealed to me.
Well would you believe it? The day finally came!
I was invited to be an official judge last week at Houston’s #RumChataMixOff Bartender Mix-Off held at Tango & Malbec. If you’re thinking the cream liqueur that’s made from dairy cream from Wisconsin and Caribbean rum, then you know exactly what I’m talking about: RumChata!
Six of Houston’s most talented bartenders prepared some of the tastiest cocktails I’ve ever tasted using RumChata as the common ingredient in each of their unique creations. I was literally taking my job very seriously, as you can tell. 🙂
One of the bartenders made her own apple puree, another toasted a piece of cinnamon right in front of us, and all of them just left us super impressed with their passion and inspiration for their tasty creations.
My good friend Jeff of Daddy Style Diaries was also a judge that evening, and that made the event even more fun.
We all grabbed a bite to eat afterwards, and we couldn’t stop talking about how much fun this experience was.
You can tell Anjelica had a great time as well. She actually won one of the goodie bags being raffled off that night. Uhm, pero ya nos acabamos todo el RumChata, jajaja!
If you’ve never tried RumChata, think a mix between rice pudding (atole) and eggnog.
It’s sweet, but not overpowering. And my favorite way of having it at home is on the rocks. Super easy to make and delicious!
Now for the good stuff! We do have some RumChata to giveaway, so if you’re interested in trying this creamy and smooth liqueur this is your chance. Oh, you should be in Houston in order to enter this giveaway.

About 10 years ago I was mixing Ron, 0rchata y hielo Into the blender for two minutes then serving it with una rajita de canela. Fast forward to today, I put Rumchata with crushed ice shake it a little and that’s all. Love it !!!
Have to agree with you there, Reina! The RumChata on ice is delicious. Now need to add a few extra ingredients myself too.
Mmmm this stuff is soo good when you drink it really cold. Even family members who don’t like the taste of alcohol love this stuff!
Yes, you are so right! 🙂
