Dulce de Leche Rum Shooters

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. So raise a glass, tip back your head and let’s have a drink.

  • Dulce de leche to rim glasses, if desired


  1. Combine the dulce de leche ice cream, heavy cream, rum, and butterschotch schnapps in a blender and pulse until smooth.
  2. If desired, heat the dulce de leche just enough so that when you dip the shot glasses in, it sticks to the edges.
