Put RumChata, Brandy and Bitters in a blender with ice. Blend until smooth. Pour into glass and dust with Old Bay Spice.
This is a great drink for spring. The salty & spicy flavors of the Old Bay Spice are wonderful on tongue along with the frozen icy mixture. The Brandy adds a lovely complexity to the delicious RumChata and the Chocolate Bitters, along with the Brandy are a tip of the hat to the classic Brandy Alexander Cocktail.
Maybe you could whip one up for your Mom on Mother’s Day!
I encourage you to experiment with salty, spicy and savory flavors when creating cocktails. Old Bay on seafood is a favorite of mine and when I noticed it there in the kitchen, I thought to myself “how can I use this in a cocktail?” I think it works wonderfully with this creamy and icy drink.
Blending cocktails in a home blender can be challenging. If the ice machine in your refrigerator can create crushed ice, you may have better luck with that. There are drink machines created especially for making frozen drinks. I was given the Bahamas Frozen Concoction Maker a few years back, and its awesome! It crushes the ice first, then runs the blender for a perfect frozen drink every time. Very impressive at a summer party!
