Pineapple Coconut RumChata Cocktail

One of the best RumChata drinks is the RumChata Pina Colada. This Pineapple Coconut RumChata Cocktail has all the tropical ingredients. Add all the ingredients, shake then strain over crushed ice.

Pineapple and RumChata Cocktail

I bought my first bottle of RumChata and have been experimenting with it ever since. From RumChata pudding shots to RumChata martinis.

RumChata is a blend of Caribbean rum, Mexican spice, and dairy cream.

Of all my RumChata recipes this cocktail is the best. Pineapple Juice, Coconut Milk, and RumChata make a fantastic RumChata cocktail. A RumChata Pina Colada. Yes, please.

Let me say this Pineapple Coconut RumChata Cocktail is rich and creamy. With that being said it is also pretty heavy. I drank three of these while filming the video. I was pretty full and buzzed after it was all said and done.

Ingredients for a Pina Colada RumChata Cocktail

Use these ingredients to make a RumChata Cocktail that is creamy fruity and amazing.

  • RumChata
  • Crushed Ice
  • Pineapple Juice
  • Unsweetened coconut milk – You want to get the coconut milk in the can. I personally like the brand Thai Kitchen. It needs to be unsweetened coconut milk. Before opening the can give it a good shake.
  • simple syrup – Simple syrup is equal parts sugar and water boiled until the sugar dissolves. If it is just two of us having a few drinks I will do half a cup of sugar and half a cup of water.
  • Mint and Crushed Pineapple for garnish.

When you open the can of coconut milk it may have separated or may be clumpy. Pour it into a microwaveable safe container or measuring cup. Heat for 20 to 30 seconds give it a good stir and it will be clump-free.

Here are 3 methods of crushing ice.

  1. Put a couple of handfuls of ice in a blender and blend for a few seconds. You don’t want to break the ice down completely. 
  2. Get a large ziplock bag and fill it with 1/3 full of ice. Take a meat tenderizer (kitchen hammer) and hammer the ice until it is crushed. It is so worth crushing the ice in this cocktail. Make sure you have straws because that crushed ice makes this drink hard to sip!
  3. Another cocktail ice hack is just to buy a bag from Chic-fil-a or Sonic. They have the best ice!
