For full step-by-step instructions, scroll down to our recipe card at the bottom of the page.

Here are the ingredients you will need to make this shot: 

  • Rumchata
  • Vanilla Vodka
  • White Chocolate Liqueur
  • Whipped Cream
  • Holiday sprinkles

The great thing about this shot is all you need are shot glasses and a steady hand. 

No cocktail mixer or blender are required. 

I use a bartender spoon to help with this part of the pouring process but you can use a teaspoon and some even use the side of a butter knife. 

If you don’t have vanilla vodka, you can use plain vodka and a dash of vanilla syrup or just plain vodka on its own. 

What Is Rumchata?

Rumchata is a sweet, creamy liqueur made with rum, cream, and cinnamon. It’s often used in cocktails and desserts, and it’s a popular choice for holiday parties.
