This semi-frozen concoction stands well as both a summer and winter cocktail.  These Dulce de Leché Rum Shooters are sweet and delicious.  Maybe a little too easy to drink 😉

For this drink, I went back to the first night we received our stash of Captain Morgan’s Rum to test out some recipes and ideas, and honed in on these little shooters that I think would be great for a crowd, just like a festive Mexican Candy Shot. So raise a glass, tip back your head and let’s have a drink.

Serves: 6


  • 1/2 cup dulce de leche ice cream
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream - or eggnog, if you’re feeling festive
  • 4 oz rum
  • 2 oz butterscotch schnapps
  • Dulce de leche to rim glasses - if desired


  • Combine the dulce de leche ice cream, heavy cream, rum, and butterschotch schnapps in a blender and pulse until smooth.
  • If desired, heat the dulce de leche just enough so that when you dip the shot glasses in, it sticks to the edges.
  • Divide the dulce de leche rum mixture evenly into 6 shot glasses. Toast and enjoy.
  • **Feeding a crowd? Have a lot of company? Make a bigger batch. Double or triple the quantity!**
