Is it a dessert drink or is it a brunch drink? Well, you will have to decide about that. But, I can tell you for sure it is delicious.
This is a great choice for a cocktail year round. Who can resist a warm, sweet, and spicy cinnamon roll?
A cute garnish for this drink is to skewer a mini cinnamon roll and serve it on top of the glass. I used refrigerated cinnamon rolls and cut each into quarters before baking. I fit them into a small baking dish to hold their shape. This just provides an extra treat with this already divine beverage.
Serve each one on a tray with an individual cocktail shaker for a special touch. Let each guest shake their own just before pouring it in the chilled glass.
As a brunch beverage, I like to serve this with a small herbed tart that is made with a prepared puff pastry. And on the side, a piece of thick cut maple glazed bacon. The salty taste plays well with the sweet cinnamon drink. Fresh fruit is always a welcome addition.
- Sticky Buns Martini
- 2 ounces RumChata
- 1 ounce Cinnamon Spice Kahlua
- 1 ounce Caramel Vodka
- 1 ounce half and half
- Sugar and cinnamon for rimming
- Dip the rim of a cocktail glass in water and then in a sugar cinnamon mixture. Chill.
- Fill a cocktail shaker half full of ice. Add RumChata, Kahlua, Caramel Vodka, and half and half to shaker. Shake until very cold. Pour into chilled glass.
As a dessert, I think it can stand on its own. But a dish of salty nuts and some fresh berries would certainly be great on the side.
