Bumbu Rum Hot Chocolate

You can’t go wrong with a warm hot chocolate to end a frantic day. What if we told you we have come up with a real way of turning that ‘nice’ hot chocolate into something a lot more enjoyable?

Bumbu Rum is a sensation because it tastes so darn nice – inspired by a centuries-old recipe, Bumbu’s Caribbean blend is packed with vanilla spice and other tropical treats. The result is a sip bursting with caramelised banana and toffee flavours.

We think it’s the perfect addition for a spiked hot chocolate!

See below our very indulgent Bumbu Hot Chocolate recipe:


  • 25ml Bumbu Rum
  • 1tbsp thick caramel
  • 125ml whole milk
  • 50g milk chocolate


  1. Mix together the rum and the caramel (this will need a bit of elbow grease!) and leave to the side
  2. Warm the milk over a medium heat until it begins to simmer
  3. Remove the milk from the heat and add the milk chocolate
  4. Using a wooden spoon, constantly stir the chocolate into the milk until it has melted
  5. Place the milk back on a low heat and slowly add the rum mixture
  6. Continue to stir quickly until the rum mixture has fully dissolved
  7. Pour into your favourite mug, and top with some grated nutmeg
