Killer Kahlua Cocktails For National Kahlua Day

Killer Kahlua Cocktails for National Kahlua Day

When it comes to mixers, nothing comes close to the sweet coffee flavor of Kahlua. Created in Mexico in the 1930s, it was named Kahlúa, meaning “House of the Acolhua people” in the Veracruz Nahuatl language spoken before the Spanish Conquest. It’s made from rum, sugar, vanilla bean, and arabica coffee, as such it contains approximately 10 mg per 100 mL (4.85 mg in each 1½ oz.) drink or about 25% the amount found in the same volume of coffee.

In honor of National Kahlua Day, we’re showing off the versatility of this delicious liqueur with a collection of 6 unique Kahlua “Kocktails!”
