Forget about just serving coffee, you’re going to want to serve this after dinner drink to your company instead. It’s just that good!

Whenever we entertain, we go it all out. At least five different appetizers, side dishes for way more people than we’re having, and a main course like carnitas to serve half the neighborhood. I don’t know if it’s the Italian in the both of us, or if it’s 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 - that’s if the boys don’t raid the fridge before they go to bed.

But dessert always seems to be an after thought 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. It’s all about the savory food.

So you could totally get away with serving this RumChata chocolate aperitif – or after-dinner drink – for dessert! It’s like an adult version of chocolate milk, kicked up with a little coffee flavor. See that? I’m saving you a whole course here just by making this drink.

It’s really the perfect combination of flavors… you’ve 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. It’s that simple.
