It’s great for sipping at home, and is an appealing Thanksgiving and holiday gift.
Kahlúa, made in Veracruz, Mexico, is the number-one selling coffee liqueur in the world. But that’s old news.
The new news is that the company has added Kahlúa Cinnamon Spice to the Kahlúa family. The new flavor joins original Kahlúa, Kahlúa Especial, Kahlúa French Vanilla, Kahlúa Hazelnut, Kahlúa Mocha and a seasonal Kahlúa Peppermint Mocha.
In the coffee shop world, French vanilla, hazelnut and mocha are popularly added to hot and cold coffee drinks. Cinnamon and spice is a holiday season favorite.
And if the cinnamon and spice are 40-proof, so much the better to celebrate the season.

The tempting new flavor is patterned after café de olla, a traditional Mexican coffee drink flavored with cinnamon and piloncillo, Mexican dark brown sugar. In Kahlúa Cinnamon Spice, you can taste these flavors over dark coffee notes, along with a touch of cloves, molasses and nuttiness. The combination is creamy, smooth and seductive.
It’s definitely a crowd-pleaser. You can drink it neat, add it to coffee (hot or iced), pour it over ice cream or add a spoonful to perk up hot fudge or caramel sauce. We’ve enjoyed it in hot chocolate and warm milk.
There are many cocktail possibilities as well; you can find them at Kahlua.com.
While we prefer Kahlúa-vodka and Kahlúa-tequila cocktails, here’s a fall-inspired recipe:
