Forget about just serving coffeeâyouâre going to want to serve this after dinner drink to your company instead. Itâs just that good!
Whenever we entertain, we go it all out. At least five different appetizers, side dishes for way more people than weâre having, and a main course like carnitas to serve half the neighborhood. I donât know if itâs the Italian in the both of us, or if itâs just because we love to cook. but the food situation is usually out of control. The good thing is that we usually have leftovers to save us from cooking the next day -- thatâs if the boys donât raid the fridge before they go to bed.
But dessert always seems to be an afterthought for us. Usually we have someone bring it for us or throw out some chocolates. I have friends of mine that actually base their dinner on the dessert they made, but not us. Itâs all about the savory food.
So you could totally get away with serving this RumChata chocolate digestif â or after-dinner drink â for dessert! Itâs like an adult version of chocolate milk, kicked up with a little coffee flavor. See that? Iâm saving you a whole course here just by making this drink.
Itâs really the perfect combination of flavorsâ¦ youâve got chocolate and coffee with creamy Rumchata to round it out.
If you want to make this drink up ahead of time, just double, triple or quadruple the amounts that you need per person and keep it cold in the fridge. Then come time for dessert, just rim your glasses and pour. Itâs that simple.
Sure, you can sere up a nice piece of chocolate cake or some tiramisu to go along with this RumChata chocolate aperitif too, I donât think anyone will complain.
