It’s rhubarb season and that is definitely an exciting season around here. Instead of the same old rhubarb crisp recipe that everyone makes year after year it is time to put an adult twist on an old time classic. The name of the upgrade game is RumChata!
RumChata was released in 2009 and is made from scratch using real ingredients such as rice, sugar, cinnamon and vanilla. It is a replica of the delicious Horchata, which is a drink that is enjoyed throughout Spain and Mexico that dates back to the time of the ancient Egyptians. RumChata is a liqueur that features dairy products in the form of homogenized cream, however it does not need to be refrigerated, making it a convenient beverage because it doesn’t need to take up space in your fridge.
It is a favorite of warm beverage drinkers everywhere as it is a fun way to booze up coffees, cappuccinos or hot chocolate during cold weather. However, true RumChata lovers find ways to smuggle their beloved creamy booze into their favorites beverages – and food – no matter the season! That’s where this Rhubarb recipe comes in. With a little help from Lynell’s expert baking skills we’ve made a RumChata Rhubarb Crisp recipe that is filled with creamy and cinnamon flavors. Follow our recipe, add a dollop of ice cream or whipped cream to the warm dessert and you’re in business. We can’t help you much for your dinner planning, but we can promise your dessert will be a top notch part of the meal!
