So, whoever's idea it was to invent a liquor that taste's like my madrinha's Arroz Doce was a genius. It's totally delicious just on its own.  I am talking about Rum Chata people.

So I hope not to sound like an alcoholic because, I'm not, but guess what Snapple, Rum Chata is made from the best stuff on earth. And there's more than one way to enjoy it!.
