Do you like coffee? Do you like booze? Then you are sure to like Kahlua. Today (Feb. 27th) is National Kahlua Day!
Kahlua makes a lot of delicious cocktails. Below is a list of a few that I have tried. There are a lot more. Maybe by next National Kahlua Day I will have tried enough new ones to make another list. But I highly suggest you Google Kahlua cocktails and try some others.
White Russian - With vodka to amp up the alcohol and heavy cream this is a creamy coffee delight.
Black Russian - If you take the cream out of a White Russian you get a Black Russian. Good, but I like the dessert feel the cream gives.
Sombrero - If you take the vodka out of a White Russian you get a Sombrero. Also good. But I like the extra punch of the vodka. So, of the three I like the White Russian best. But if I am missing an ingredient, I enjoy any of the three.
Mudslide - When you add Irish Cream to a White Russian you get a Mudslide. Who doesn't like Irish Cream? Adds more alcohol and makes it even sweeter.
Revolver - A bourbon/Kahula cocktail with some orange bitters. The three flavors go very well together. I like the deeper flavor the Kahlua give to the bourbon. If you like Old Fashioneds and coffee you will like this.
Root Beer - Kahlua, cola and Galliano. I don't know how, but they mix into a drink that taste very much like root beer. Yummy, if you like root beer.
B52 - Either a shot or a drink. It is supposed to be a layered drink but I can never get that to work so I just mixed it all up. I think orange and coffee go well together so I like the Grand Marnier (or Triple Sec) Kahlua combination.
Toasted Almond Drink - Almond and coffee? Good idea. The almond comes from amaretto, so it is a rather sweet drink but I like that sort of thing.
Cherry Coffee Cola - Who knew that Kahula and cola would go so well together?
A cherry cola with a twist.
