"Careful man, there's a beverage here!"
Below are tons of wonderful ways for you to enjoy Kahlua including my life your own homemade Kahlua and my signature recipe for the White Russian,
or, as The Dude refers to it, the Caucasian.
Martini Diva Style
2 Oz. Kahlua Coffee Liqueur
2 Oz. Half & Half
2 Dashes Scrappy's Chocolate Bitters
Garnish: Espresso Powder Rim, Whipped Cream, Scrappy's Orange Bitters
Tools: Cocktail Shaker, Stir Stick
Glass: Old Fashioned
Dip the rim of the glass in some Kahlua, then into the espresso powder, chill glass in the freezer.
Add a large ice cube to the glass then pour in the Kahlua. Slowly add the half & half. Do not stir.
Garnish with the whipped cream, tap a few dashes of the orange bitters on top, add a stir stick and serve. Watch out for cats ....
Yup, Bailey Le Chat loves this White Russian. He jumped up on my table while I was styling my photoshoot and helped himself so I just hit the shutter and grabbed a few shots before scooting him away. He's named after a famous Irish cream liqueur, but now I'm wondering if I should have named him Kahlua La Creme, or The Dude!
MORE KAHLUA COCKTAILS
And, of course, many of my COFFEE and ESPRESSO cocktails that call for coffee liqueur are perfect for using your Kahlua.
National Kahlua Day is February 27th.
