Cinnamon Toast Crunch Cocktail Recipe

Dan George | Mantitlement

Our Cinnamon Toast Crunch cocktail recipe is a delicous RumChata drink that tastes like your favorite cereal in an adult drink. Cheers!

I had heard about RumChata a bunch of times and had seen it mentioned several times when esearching cocktail recipes. It’s always intrigued me but I had never made the move to try it until just recently.

We went to a friend’s house for dinner the other night and after we ate he brought out a bottle of RumChata. Finally, I was going to get to try this stuff!

First we drank it straight up, which tasted way better than I had thought it would, and then we started mixing it up into different cocktails and shots. It was super fun [and tasty] playing with different RumChata drink recipes.

RumChata Drinks

There are so many different RumChata drinks that it’s a bit like reading the "menu" that comes with those jelly beans. You know, seeing which combinations will make it taste like a peanut butter and jelly sandwich.
Same thing with RumChata!

One of the more infamous Rumchata Drinks is the Cinnamon Toast Crunch shot. It is made simply by combining RumChata with Fireball Whiskey.

Turns out, it's really quite tasty! But it wasn't quite good enough for me.

I definitely wanted to kick up the vanilla flavors and tone down the cinnamon from the Fireball. Fireball whiskey cinnamon tastes a lot different to me than sugary cinnamon toast crunch cereal.

It’s more like red hot candy spice, not warm and sugary spice like the cereal.

To get more vanilla flavor I added vanilla vodka to the mix and rimmed the glass with cinnamon sugar. The flavors were perfect, strong enough to be a good drink, but warm enough flavors that everyone will like.

The resulting combination is a Cinnamon Toast Crunch cocktail that is creamy, packed with cinnamon flavor and, honestly, pretty irresistible. The balance of flavors is really good even though it's on the sweeter side of the cocktail spectrum.
