Rumchata Mixoff: let's get ready to tumble!

...get it? Tumble? Because bartenders use tumblers to mix drinks. 😏

Thank you to Rumchata for asking me to join the festivities!

If you're anything like me, you love to try new drinks. That's why I'm here to start you off with my personal favorite Rumchata recipe, ready? 

1 part Rumchata

1 part of your favorite hot chocolate, mine is the Mexican brand

A stick or 2 of cinnamon when cooking

One dollop of whip cream once poured

Dash of cinnamon on top

Mix to taste and enjoy! 

Yes, it's that simple. Honestly, I could have said open bottle, pour over ice, and sip but that seemed too obvious; it's literally that good!! So when they asked me to judge the Rumchata Mixoff I was in. 

Now that you know how I enjoy my Rumchata, here are a few pics from the mixoff where the pros put their own twist on things and made some magic!

The contestants were judged for creativity, presentation, marketability, and taste. After sharing the entries with the audience (like a good judge should), it was time to choose a winner! Our victor incorporated traditional Peruvian elements into her cocktail, that tasted like an adult milk chocolate drink with the best chocolate syrup of your life adorning the glass. Congrats to this Joyce and Gigi's champ Diana and great job to all the contestants!!

Thank you to all who attended and be sure to bring the party to your next get together!
