Rum Chata – This is going to give you that creaminess to this drink that gives it that rich flavor.
Fireball – Cinnamon flavor that elevates this cocktail to a whole new level.
Cream Soda – The cream soda gives vanilla flavors to each sip. I do recommend using cream soda and not root beer.
Granulated Sugar – If you don’t want granulated you can swap with brown sugar for even richer flavor.
Cinnamon – You need ground cinnamon and a cinnamon stick for this cocktail.
Corn Syrup – The syrup is used to rim the glass with a sweetness that really gives this drink that sweet flavor.
Whipped Cream – Buy pre-made whipped cream or use heavy cream to make your own homemade whipped topping.

Helpful Tips For Drink
- Feel free to use any type of glass you want or add to little shot glasses to make shooters for a party.
- If you want a stronger cocktail, use a little less cream soda.
- Swap the cinnamon and sugar coating with a sprinkle of cinnamon if you don’t want the extra sugar.
Can I make this drink in advance?
Since you are using cream soda, it will go flat if you make it in advance. I recommend making your cocktail right before you are ready to drink it.
Can I make a big batch of cocktails?
Yes you sure can. The recipe below is for one drink. Feel free to make a pitcher and pour right into glasses and serve. This is a great party drink for a crowd!
