It is starting to feel a little bit like fall here in Northwest Iowa. I love the fall but I really hate to see the summer fly by so fast. I am getting into the spirit of fall this year by collaborating with other bloggers and creating a series of fall cocktails. This week I have made an easy RumChata Vanilla Chai Tea. It was pretty yummy!
I called in some help for these posts! Peggy will be helping me create these awesome cocktail recipes for the next 5 weeks. I hope you enjoy what we come up with. If not…at least we are having fun. Haha! If you love camping she has a great blog all about their camping adventures in their cute T@B teardrop camper. You can check it out at tabcamp.blogspot.com
Easy RumChata Vanilla Chai Tea

Brew the tea. Boil the water and add 2 tea bags. Let steep. We liked the drink better with strong tea. It tastes a little watery if the tea isn’t strong enough. I don’t drink much tea so I don’t have a kettle. We used a regular pot to boil and brew.
A drink is always better with a bit of “rimming”. This one calls for a cinnamon/sugar combo rim. This is more sugar than cinnamon. We liked the ratio of 2 tablespoons sugar to 1/4 tsp of cinnamon but the best way is to taste. Some people may love more cinnamon than others. Mix the cinnamon and sugar and place in a shallow dish.
Pour a small amount of RumChata in a separate shallow bowl.
Dip the top of your cup into the RumChata.
Then into the cinnamon/sugar mixture.
We rolled it around a bit to make sure the rim was completely covered.
Carefully pour the tea into the cup. We transferred it from the pot to a pyrex measuring cup with a pour spout. This way the cinnamon/sugar mixture will remain untouched.
Add the RumChata to the tea. It is fun to watch it swirl into the cup.
Stir it up!
Add the whipped cream and sprinkle with a little cinnamon, then add in the cinnamon stick (it’s just for show)!
Isn’t it pretty? And it tasted good too! Yes, we did sample the recipe. Haha!
