Having started the Keto Diet made me curious as to how I could still enjoy a cocktail. Interesting enough many kinda of alcohol have very little sugar and carbs. Today I’m trying a spin on Rum Chata and replaceing the rum with vodka.
When I originally thought of this recipe I was sure rum had carbs since it’s made from sugarcane byproducts. But like vodka it doesn’t have carbs and you can use rum if you prefer. I wanted to try something different so I tried vodka.
The amount of vodka that you use is up to you. There are only 0.6 net carbs in this drink. I personally only have one…ok maybe two as it is a drink you like to sip and tastes like dessert.
RumChata ingredients are essentially rum, sugar, vanilla, cinnamon and cream based on a traditional drink called a horchata. On RumChata’s website describes it’s flavor as if “Rum & Horchata had a love child and it’s delicious”. I agree.
1 oz middle shelf vodka, more if you prefer
1/2 cup almond milk, I use Unsweetened Almond for less carbs
2 tablespoons heavy cream
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon fresh grated nutmeg
vanilla stevia to taste or sweetener of your choice
