FOOD HOLIDAY: Kahlua Cocktail Recipes For National Coffee Day

What better way to celebrate National Coffee Day, September 29th, than by adding some coffee liqueur to your coffee? You might not want to drink it for breakfast, but any Kahlua cocktail is a terrific after-dinner drink, rich enough to be served instead of dessert.

Kahlúa, the word‘s largest coffee liqueur brand, suggests these two recipes to warm your day:

Kahlúa Espresso Martini

  • 1½ parts Kahlúa
  • 1 part vodka
  • 1 part freshly brewed espresso
    Preparation: Combine all ingredients into a cocktail shaker. Add ice and shake vigorously. Strain into a chilled martini glass

    “Everyday” Kahlúa Coffee
    Here’s a pleasant way to end the day:

  • 2 parts Kahlúa
  • 2 parts coffee
  • 1 park cream or milk

  • Optional garnishes: whipped cream, rolled wafer cookie (like Pepperidge Farm Pirouette cookies)
    Preparation: Shake all ingredients and serve in glass mug with optional garnishes.

    Famous Kahlúa Drinks

    Famous Kahlúa cocktails include the Black Russian (1 oz Kahlúa and 1.5 oz vodka), White Russian (1 oz Kahlúa, 1.5 oz vodka and 1 oz heavy cream) and Mudslide (1.5 ounces each of Kahlúa, vodka and Baileys Irish Cream; add vanilla ice cream for a Frozen Mudslide). Shake all ingredients (with ice, except Frozen Mudslide) and strain into rocks glass.

    Kahlúa has been produced in Veracruz, Mexico from local coffee beans since 1936. The name means “House of the Acolhua people” in Nahuatl, the Aztec language. The brand is now owned by Pernod Ricard, the largest spirits distributor in the world.
