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.

You can also serve them on February 27th, National Kahlúa Day—and anytime in-between.

Kahlúa has been produced in Veracruz, Mexico from local coffee beans since 1936. The name derives from the word “kahwa,” which is Arabic slang for coffee.
