National Kahlúa Day

Nothing says National Kahlua Day better than a Kahlua on the Rocks. Fill a glass with ice, add Kahlua, stir and garnish with fresh orange zest.

We don’t need a reason to celebrate our favorite rum and coffee liqueur but we’ll take today as a sign from the liquor gods above to mix up a drink with Kahlúa.

Kahlúa can be simply enjoyed simply on the rocks stirred and topped with a bit of orange zest (trust me, you won’t want to skimp on it!), served in a shot, or mixed into a variety of cocktails and warm coffee beverages. I also simply enjoy adding Kahlúa with some homemade whipped cream (my boyfriend makes great whipped cream using Hiram Walker’s hazelnut liqueur!) to hot chocolate for a different dessert option. And, “upping the ante” a tad bit more, another warm Kahlúa beverage is the Monte Cristo, as featured below:

Monte Cristo:

  • ¾ oz. Kahlua
  • ¾ oz. Hiram Walker Triple Sec
  • 1 cup coffee
  • Whipped cream
  • Chocolate shavings
  • Orange zest

Rim a glass coffee mug with sugar. Add liqueurs and fill with hot coffee. Stir. Top with whipped cream, chocolate shavings, and orange zest.

Cheers!
